My Students

Our students face incredible challenges and struggles just to be able to consistently make it to school and focus on their academic development. They must persevere through the difficulties of attending school in a high need, low income community and face the budget cuts and dwindling resources.

Our students are highly motivated and dedicated learners.

They work through the challenges that face them in their lives inside and outside of the classroom. They are young people that very badly want to find academic success and are willing to work hard to find their success. My students also encounter learning differences such as learning disabilities, language impairments, emotional disabilities, and other additional handicapping conditions that compound upon the challenges that they face attending an urban school.

My Project

It may seem small, but these basic supplies will truly help our students focus on their academic development without the stigma of needing to request financial assistance to provide for the beginning of the school year. These supplies will go a long way to helping provide a rigorous, hands-on, and differentiated learning experience to the multiple learning styles, differences, and challenges facing the students in our classroom.

This project is extremely important!

With your help all of our students will be able to begin the school year in an excellent fashion! Your support will go a long way to helping to ensure that all of our students will develop to their full academic potential!
