My Students

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Nelson Mandela

I teach 24 second grade students in the inner city of Indianapolis.

Every one of these students is special and unique in their own way. Most speak fluent Spanish and are learning the English language. Some come from homes where a grandparent is their primary caretaker. A couple of students belong to our nutrition club, a program where they are sent home with a backpack of food to help feed their families over the weekend. But while they have their own challenges, every single family sends their child to school prepared to learn every day. I take my job very serious and want nothing but the best for them. While I may have high expectations of behavior and student work, they all know I care about each one of them.

My Project

I am requesting materials that are much needed. First, I am requesting AA batteries for our listening center. Since it is used on a daily basis, we are always in need of replacement batteries. I am also requesting pencils, Post-It Notes, index cards and markers for use during guided reading time. My groups are constantly making charts, tape and vocabulary cards. By having these items, we will be prepared for the rest of the year. Finally, I am requesting fresh hallway passes. Our current passes are very worn and replacements would be great!

By providing these needed supplies, you will partner with me in motivating my students to begin to experience the joy of learning in an organized way.

Thank you for your support in making this project become a reality.
