My Students

Where do I begin? I teach at an urban, Title I school in downtown Chattanooga, TN. In my classroom, most of my students come from low-income households, which can hinder their learning due to lack of supplies. However, this does not hinder their spirit or love for learning. No matter what is going on at home, my students come to school each day ready to learn. Seeing their love for learning inspires me to be the best teacher I can be for them.

I want my classroom to serve as a safe, consistent environment where my kids can come to enjoy learning, without worry.

I have the privilege to be a light for my students, and I want, more than anything, is to see them be successful. I wish that each of you could experience the joy that I get to experience being their teacher.

My Project

My students are in need of basic school supplies such as pencils, crayons, scissors, and other items that are essential to helping them succeed. I want to help my students have a great start to their 2nd grade year! Since most of my students come from low-income households and may not be able to get these supplies on their own, it is my desire to provide these items for them. Your donation will help me provide that for my students!

These supplies will help my students be successful this school year.

Please consider helping my kids have the successful school year that they deserve!
