My Students

Our high school serves over 3,000 students within the Southeast Side of Houston, TX. Our students are eager and hungry to make their experience memorable and establish the foundations for future growth and development. As a 2nd year teacher on campus, one of my goals is to close the gaps in funding by reaching out to our online community for support.

I want my students to experience the success that accompanies hard work and the exuberance of a job well done.

My Project

Having the appropriate materials that I have requested, our students will be able to participate in multiple ensembles within the band program. We welcome every student into our program, regardless of financial circumstances, and through these supplies, students will have the ability to participate and perform at the highest level possible.

These materials provide students with the opportunity to reach their full potential and experience success in the classroom, as well as on the marching field and concert stage.

With your help, we can bring music into our community and reap the benefits of proud students involved in a program striving for excellence in all that they do.
