My Students

My students are great kids that come to school on a daily basis with what materials can be supplied to them. Many of these students come from single family homes and spend their nights caring for younger siblings while trying to complete their homework. They are always in need of new educational supplies and truly appreciate anything that we can supply them with. Donations of materials, books and resources that are made to my students are put right to good use.

My Project

I teach in a school system that is in the center of a very low income area. Many times our students come to school unprepared and without the most basic school supplies. These materials will truly help increase the academic success of my students. Providing my students with these materials can help limit the anxiety they may have about coming to school without the needed materials and give them a sense of comfort that these materials will be available to them. Anytime we can provide students with new materials and supplies it is a win for them socially and academically.

These pencils and erasers will guarantee all my students have the basic materials that they need to be successful on a daily basis.
