My Students

My students are amazing scholars that are eager to learn and take on new challenges! They come from varied backgrounds, from their culture and ethnicity, yet they all share the same love for learning and becoming better versions of themselves.

We are a Title I School, which means we have high financial needs and limited resources.

Even with this challenge, my students are eager to take on every opportunity. Thanks to sites like DonorsChoose, and those who support us, we are able to provide these necessary opportunities to our amazing students!

My Project

My students are amazing scholars that come to school eager to learn and grow. However, many of them come to school with torn coats, shirts, pants; and I have been sewing it by hand over the years but this year in particular I have not been able to keep up with the demand, or my hand-stitches come loose. My students need this sewing machine so I can mend their clothes to make sure they are warm during this winter and can feel confidently clean in the school uniform. By supplying this one machine, hundreds of students to come will be able to maintain a clean, confident look that will keep them safe from the elements.
