My Students

My students come from a high poverty area. They don't really have a lot of physical resources but that doesn't stop them from learning.

They are enthusiastic about learning and love to come to school.

They will even wake up early to come before school for tutoring or dance practice. They often come to school not just to have their educational needs met but to to have other needs met as well. Our school is the most stable and safe place in many of our students' lives.

My Project

My students need a refreshing start to the end of their school year. Most of our supplies have been depleted and we would love to finish with new supplies. We are in great need of pencils, coloring items such as pencils, crayons, etc. Also, we use a lot of colored paper in various colors. This gets the kids excited to see what color their work will be this week and helps prevent them from losing their assignments. This year my handy dandy stapler stapled its last staple so we are currently shuffling our papers around or asking our friendly neighbor teacher to borrow hers which wastes precious teaching time.
