My Students

My students are energetic, eager to learn, and fun-loving. Despite some tough situations some of my students face at home, they come in every day really giving it their all. At our school, 100% of our students receive a free breakfast and lunch. Coming from an urban district and a Title I school, unfortunately my students do not have as many supplies and opportunities as the surrounding districts.

"The need for imagination, as a sense of truth, and as a feeling of responsibility — these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education." - Rudolf Steiner

For this reason, I work extra hard to raise money for supplies that will be used by my students. These supplies benefit my students in so many ways, and it also teaches them a deeper lesson of how good the world can be. Over the years when I have told my students that we have gotten a project funded and we were getting supplies, the looks on their faces were priceless. My students are so appreciative, and donations from kind-hearted people really impact their lives in such a major way!

My Project

So far this year is off to a great start! I am writing this project to ask for some basic supplies such as ink and tape.

“You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” – George Lorimer

Despite facing many challenges my students get up everyday, come to school and try their best. My students are such hard workers and really give 100% everyday! For this reason I am asking for some end of the year surprises for my motivated students. I would love to surprise them throughout the year with treats such as sunglasses, paper airplanes and bubble gum!
