My Students

My students are the future of our country and I am trying to give them the tools to navigate this world. They are independent, strong, kind, and hard working. Their ideas amaze me daily and I am reminded of the good in the world just by being able to work with them.

I am looking for your help to empower my students.

I want to put the tools in their hands to help them build character, ethic, and morals. I want them to see how the little things in the world add up to big things, and those big things make a difference.

My Project

Our Community Service and Leadership class is always looking for ways to organize events to help out our community. When putting together their ideas, and promoting their fundraisers they would get a lot further with the help of the Cricut paper cutting machine. Their projects would have a more professional look and be taken more seriously by our community.

My students are looking for ways to make a difference in our community.

Already this year they put together a hot chocolate fundraisers to help out our local Hospice home, and they are hoping to create events to help our local animal shelter, our homeless shelter, and our women's shelter. Please show my students that a little bit kindness goes a long way.
