My Students

My students are inner-city students with a predominantly Hispanic background. They are the nicest students I have ever taught! They are eager to learn and every year we make great progress. This year I am focusing on improving their reading and social and emotional skills. To be happier, they need creative supports that decrease their anxiety. They need an environment that shows love and care to encourage them to do their very best each and every day. This is my dream!

My Project

My students need kleenex, hand sanitizer, black pens, white out, lysol wipes, water, cups, air freshener, post-its, and stickers to make it to the end of the year. Our classroom is almost out of supplies and the last day of school is June 21.

One hundred twenty students visit my classroom each day and we use up alot of supplies.

Especially during the flu season, we need kleenex, hand sanitizer, and Lysol wipes to keep the germs down. Then the allergy season comes along. We have a water cooler in the classroom that needs to restocked as well. It saves on students leaving the classroom to get water and helps out with all the colds and testing anxiety. The candy is to help us during the testing season.

We appreciate your help to make our classroom sanitary and restocked.
