My Students

Showing a student their potential at the most difficult time could be a turning point in their academic career. Help students receive basic tools that are essential to their education.

My students are from diverse cultures and difficulties with so much energy and potential.

They are in a learning environment where agriculture technology and science are the foundation for education. In this environment they focus on high-level skill development and gaining academic skills proficiency. The student's are introduced to urban agriculture courses that cover veterinary science; landscape and design; urban gardening/horticulture; aquaponics; greenhouse techniques; and food science.

My Project

To be successful in school students need school supplies to participate in the classroom. This includes loose leaf paper, pencils, folders, erasers, pencil sharpener, instructional text and organizers. Having supplies needed will be one less thing for students to be concerned about.

The school supplies will allow the students to be prepared to participate in activities during instruction.

Students are more engaged in class and more prepared for assignments when they have supplies needed to take notes and do homework at home. Students that lack basic supplies will feel inferior or less than other students. Having supplies may seem like small things to worry about but it makes a big in the life of a student. It also reduces time in the classroom spent on trying to create other options.
