My Students

I work with some great students. My students definitely deserve to have as much as possible. Many of my students have been dealt a bad hand in life. All of the students at our school receive free lunch.

Because many of my kids may not have a lot at home, I want to make sure they get the best educational experience possible.

I work with 6th and 8th graders, and both of these groups are pivotal points in life.

My students are really trying to determine who they will be in the years to come. It is my job to help make sure they turn in to good people. This means giving them a good experience while keeping them in school and helping them learn.

My Project

Every year, my students start the school year eager to learn, but nervous because they are sixth-graders at a new school. Having eight different teachers in middle school, many of them don't know how to split up their supplies so they have the right things for each class. Others just either don't bring supplies or aren't able to.

After the last year two years that my students have had, I would love to be able to help ease the demands of school by providing them with the supplies they need to be successful in math class.

I don't want them worrying about losing their pencils or markers or having to having to share one pair of scissors between 4 people. These supplies will help me to provide a successful environment for my students.
