My Students

"Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be." -Rita Pierson. I live by this quote in my classroom.

My students are a diverse group, with some students speaking English as a second language, some with learning disabilities, and others who are achieving beyond grade-level expectations.

More than 75% of my students receive a free or reduced-price lunch and do not have access to technology at home. Even with the obstacles they face, they are a motivated group of kids with hearts of gold.

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my students' lives in many ways. Having access to individual supplies whether in school or at home is critical to the success of students.

With the many unknowns of the new schools year, having supplies should not be a concern of students.

Many families are unable to purchase the necessary basic supplies for a successful learning environment due to Covid-19. These basic essentials will allow my students to become better organizers and have the necessary materials to create projects.

These supplies can be used whether in social distancing in school or at home to help students be successful in this new school year.
