My Students

I am a fourth-grade teacher in an inner-city school in Massachusetts. Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with one hundred percent of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Our school is also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the city where students speak a multitude of languages. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are diverse in their academics.

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn and excited for what is in store for them that day.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

I am requesting basic classroom supplies such as markers, crayons, and pencils. With these basic classroom supplies, my students will start the year with the essential tools for learning in an organized classroom! Most of my students come from low-income households and are unable to acquire these supplies on their own so it is of the utmost importance that I am able to provide them with these supplies to guarantee their success in school.

Help me get my classroom ready for September!

My students are eager to return to school and will be delighted to find their own school supplies for them to use and a well supplied classroom with organizational tools that work!
