My Students

The students of my school are tenacious, hard-working, and enthusiastic.

Though many of my students struggle financially and academically, they have the capacity to change the world!

In our class, we have many students on an individualized education plan that yearn for differentiated instruction.Our school is a Title 1 school in southern Oklahoma, and many of my students qualify for free and reduced lunch. We are located close to a military base, and many of our students are part of military families.

My Project

By donating to my classroom, you will help second graders experience something they have very little access to; art. My students love to express themselves by any means possible and quality art supplies will help them create masterpieces related to our core subjects. Students will be given access to materials they may have never seen before; such as pastels or watercolors. Your donation will be greatly appreciated and will allow my second graders to explore the endless possibilities of their lives through art, literature, and creative expression for every student!
