My Students

My students are a wonderful group of young explorers. Their innate curiosity and joy in discovery makes the classroom a lively, engaging space and motivates me to do everything I can to give them a strong foundation in learning. My students largely come from a low socioeconomic background, and nearly all are emergent English speakers.

Unfortunately, the amount of high quality learning materials in our classroom is a poor match for the enthusiasm and potential to be found there.

Having a largely ELL populated classroom means that my students are learning English as well as basic literacy and math. They benefit greatly from high quality multimodal materials. Given that we are a Title I school, our resources are severely limited. Over the past few years, our community of donors has helped to create classrooms that transcend these economic limitations, and have allowed our children and teachers the benefit of the highest quality learning resources and materials from art supplies to new libraries to robotics. Truly, we have seen the maxim 'if you can dream it, you can do it' come to life in our classrooms.

Please fund our projects!

My Project

This project includes the supplies our graduating kindergarteners will need to have at hand on the first day of school when they walk into their first grade classrooms. They need folders for homework, social studies, science, and math. They need composition notebooks with a space for drawing or figuring work. They need crayons, pens, pencils, and colored pencils to use across the subject areas in creating written and drawn work.

If all of these work supplies are in place on the very first day of school, we will be getting a great start to the year.

Please consider funding our project!
