My Students

I have been teaching at this school since October 2016. I teach in a pre-kindergarten to 8th-grade school with around 750 students; I see all of them. These students come from various cultural backgrounds. Forty-three percent of the school is ELL (English Language Learners.) There are very large-sized classes and varied levels of English speaking students.

Since I am in a poverty-stricken neighborhood, resources are very limited.

These students have very limited instruments in our music classroom.

Being a young, new teacher, this is very challenging to support me and my classroom. The reason I am asking for this is that my students deserve a classroom that right now I can not give them. I want to help my students in every way and I hope you can help me, help them.

My Project

Our students have been playing instruments in class and have been rehearsing all year long! However, even musicians need a break! During these breaks, instruments are being placed on the chairs and on the floor! In a school with many students in a classroom, these places lead to accidents and instruments breaking.

Instrument stands provide a safe place for instruments to rest while our young musicians are resting their skills.

By donating to this project, you are helping our classroom keep our instruments safe and usable for many years to come. Please stand with our classroom and help us keep our instruments safe!
