My Students

As the 2018-2019 school year has begun, I am filled with excitement and anticipation for what's to come. This is my first year teaching 5th grade and I am so impressed by my children already. They work so hard and are very determined individuals who don't give up easily.

I work at a Title I school where 95% of our students are economically disadvantaged.

With your help I can provide them the resources they need to be successful and confident.

My Project

There are many materials that if they are needed or wanted the teacher is responsible for purchasing them. These supplies such as permanent markers, privacy boards and tape may seem of little to no importance but they are used regularly in our classroom. My students' work is proudly displayed in the hallways using tape, our materials are labeled with markers and we currently test weekly using left over binders as privacy covers.

By donating to our classroom you can rest assure that these materials would not go unused.

We would use them daily all around our classroom and your generosity would never be forgotten.
