My Students

My students are hard workers with a passion for learning. They come to school every day ready to grow and expand upon their knowledge.

My students are from all different cultural backgrounds.

They have a diversified and wide range of needs to meet their learning schema. Our school is on the verge of being a Title I school, and many of our students have social-emotional needs, outside of their academic needs.

My students are an inspiration because they are the future leaders of our country. They make my job purposeful and worthwhile.

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my student's learning because they will help them be prepared for the day with a high quality pencil sharpener. The whiteboard will help my students take notes and participate in small group lessons.

These materials will support my students academic preparedness.

They require a lot of materials to be able to function in the classroom on a day to day basis. These are items that are not normally provided to teachers, but can be very costly to purchase and maintain. Any support that you can provide is greatly appreciated by both myself and my students.
