My Students

I teach a classroom full of amazing and curious 2nd graders in the heart of Silicon Valley! Our school is a Title I school, with 80% of our students receiving free or reduced lunch. My students come from various backgrounds, many from Hispanic and Vietnamese backgrounds, with very diverse needs. The majority of my students are English Language Learners, where English is their second language. My students come to school with a great attitude to learn and they all deserve nothing but the best!

My Project

My second grade students come from various economic backgrounds. Although we send out a list of requested supplies, they are not always able to come to school with the items they need. My school also cannot provide all these materials needed due to budget cuts. For example, with markers and colored pencils, only 1 set is given to every 2 students... Your generous donation will help them get the most basic supplies at a one-to-one ratio! The markers, colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks, and whiteboard markers are such essential supplies and will be extensively used in the classroom. The paper, tape, and sheet protectors will be used to put up their work around the classroom. Your donation is greatly appreciated!!
