My Students

My students come from a diverse backgrounds. Some are from military families, some are from other countries, and some of them have experienced traumas like homelessness and violence. I have a very strong desire to create a healthy and safe school environment for each and every student that comes through the door.

My goal is to have fun and engaging activities that help the students to forget about their trials and worries.

With the help and support of donors like you, I will be able to provide my students with more memorable experiences in the classroom. Having proper school supplies can make such a difference in a students success.

My Project

Working at a title I school, coming across classroom supplies can be difficult. There are many situations where students and their families are unable to purchase everything asked of them. I would be so grateful for any assistance possible to help my students excel.

These materials will help to encourage each students participation in daily classroom activities.

Dry erase boards will be used to complete various math tasks, while the pocket sleeves will be used in fun-interactive math stations. I know that my students would enjoy using materials other then paper and pencil, it will be an exciting way for them to practice math strategies. The dry erase boards would serve a dual purpose, doubling as a surface for counting math manipulatives on.

The remaining materials requested will be used for classroom organization! The toner will be used to print fun and exciting interactive work pages. I will also use it to print out fun math games I can laminate for use through out the school year that are fun and relative to the current season. Specifically, we will be playing math games that increase the students math fluency and math fact memorization. The file folders will be used to organize paper and documents that the students can access at their own pace.
