My Students

My students light up my world with their eagerness to learn and gain knowledge. Although they are faced with challenges because of their socioeconomic status, they manage to push themselves to the limit and give me their all.

Our daily promise to each other is to always give your best and learn something new every day.

The love and bonds I have built with them will be lifelong. My school is a Title I school so most of my students have experienced difficulties and struggles. My students are grateful and appreciate all I try to do to make their learning fun and enjoyable.

My Project

My students are in need of basic school materials to ensure their academic success. The folders, glue, scissors, and pencils will give my students the opportunity to complete academic tasks. Their academic success is my ultimate goal and these materials will assist in creating an environment that promotes academic success.

With the folders, glue, and scissors my student will be more focused on how they can become life long learners and take responsibility for their learning experiences.

In addition, these materials will open up a new learning experience for my students. They will have the opportunity to express themselves while learning at the same time!
