My Students

Twenty excited kindergartners burst through my door every school day! Our fast-paced schedule is jam-packed with songs, games, and activities as we learn to read, write and count. At this young age, children are full of curiosity and brimming with enough energy to power the whole city!

I teach in a high-poverty, inner-city public school in Indianapolis.

We are a Title I school with 100% free breakfast, lunch, and snack services for our students. Our school has classes from pre-K through sixth grade. Most of my kindergartners are English language learners. Our classroom is a wonderful place. When you walk in, you can always hear the busy hum of children in both English and Spanish as they work with each other. Our classroom is an inclusion classroom, and one of my favorite things about teaching is hearing my students help, encourage, and care for their peers with special needs. Throughout the year, we work hard each and every single day. We laugh and learn together, cheer on each other's accomplishments, and encourage each other when the work seems too tough.

My Project

Help! We are running out of supplies, but we are only halfway through the school year!

Our class has grown in numbers as our supplies have dwindled!

We are in immediate need of crayons, paper, binders, markers, and pencil pouches. These are academic tools that we use on a daily basis. It is getting harder to learn as we bicker over having to share supplies. While sharing is a part of learning, it is taking too long to complete assignments when we have to share so few resources among so many of us- especially crayons!

Would you be our hero and lend a helping hand? A little bit can go a long way!
