My Students

Making US History fun for students and comparing what happened way back to what happens now helps my students relate to history.

My school is located in an economically challenged area, and our student body is 100% free and reduced lunch.

Too many come to school hungry and without the materials they need to be successful. So many of the children worry about danger in the area, and school is one of the only safe places they go to. Our children deserve the same level of education as any other students.

My Project

My students need markers, pencils, paper, construction paper, glue sticks, pencil sharpener, erasers, crayons, Post-it Notes, and index cards for all the projects we do in social studies. My students will be able to creatively demonstrate what they have learned in class using art supplies. One of the first activities they will be completing is making posters that show understanding of the branches of our federal government. Many are very talented artistically. They will be able to write down their arguments with support, because they will have pencils and paper.

Too many of my students worry about where their next meal will come from or if they will have a home to live in.

Taking the stress of not having school supplies will make their lives a little easier.
