My Students

We are a school located in Florida, near Tampa Bay, with a high poverty rate. This is a performing arts public charter school. I encourage, teach, and mentor my students through the arts.

Artsy people are unique and beautiful people to be near; they inspire others to do, think about, and become more than they already are.

I teach Earth and Space Science to 150 middle school students. My students are eclectic and artistic. They are preteens and teens full of ambition and emotions. They are sensitive, smart, sweet, and talented. Many are very humorous, and some are insecure and looking for a safe place to just be themselves.

Most of my students ride the bus for long periods of time just to get here.

My Project

I am requesting a sanitizing UV light wand to clean computer keyboards, and tables. I am also requesting a small stick vacuum and hand soap for kids to use.

Our classroom can get very messy.

We create art with our science learning. Clay, paint, and hands-on play with construction or building are involved. Our room gets messy, glitter is on the floor or carpet, and hands need to be washed with the soap.....often!

Help us stay clean! I could never afford these items for cleaning all on my own.

Each and every donation is cheered for and appreciated by all in my classroom. We appreciate your help and support!
