My Students

My third grade class is a group of students who are eager to learn, inquisitive, and creative. Over 90% of my students are English language learners, and I admire them for their courage and tenacity to seek knowledge and continue working even when it is hard. They learn best through hands-on projects and stories.

As a brand new school, resources are limited.

Your donations will help to support these students' learning and allow them to flourish by providing resources for them that they need to succeed.

My Project

As a brand new STEM school, our resources are limited. One main resource that is limited in my classroom is books. I would love to be able to build up a library of quality STEM books for my students.

Studies have shown that literature is a great way for students to connect to STEM challenges.

Books provide a way for students to engage in the lesson and start to get students minds going. My classroom also has a huge English Language Learner population. These quality books and materials would provide a visual connection for these students and engage them in learning.
