My Students

School is a safe haven for my students amidst a turbulent community environment. My students are diverse, in grades K-5; they are bright, funny, smart, compassionate, and caring individuals that have a great sense of loyalty for their families and their friends.

My students are roses in the concrete; despite the barrenness of their environment, they continue to grow.

I cannot say how many times I've seen kids in difficult circumstances rise above their differences and actively choose peace and understanding.

My Project

More and more kids have sensory issues that present at school, especially when they are overwhelmed with the increasingly higher pressure learning environment. Large items like tables and lights are often difficult to approve in school budgets.

Your donation will give students who respond positively to touch and visual stimulation a "favorite" place to be.

We already received funding for the sensory beads that go along with this table. With the furniture, I will be able to set up a special section of the Cove explicitly for sensory stimulation. Many of my younger students as well as special education students respond more quickly and effectively to hands on activities as the predecessor to talking out their feelings and behaviors.
