My Students

Imagine a small rural school with sweet southern charm. I don't have to imagine it, because it's my reality at my school. We are a rural Title I school. We are small, but we are definitely mighty. We have an awesome staff that truly strives to do our best for our amazing students. All of these people work together to provide our superstar students with the best possible education. We are a school of motivated dreamers! We make our dreams come true. Our students react to this awesome leadership in the most wonderful ways. Our students have become dreamers as well. They realize that they can do anything they set their minds to. They have the courage to follow their dreams because they feel supported by their teachers. Our students come from all different homes, backgrounds, and situations. We strive to give our students the same opportunities that larger more financially able schools do. I use my own money as well as all of my state supply money (which isn't much) to purchase school supplies, books, and innovative STEM and robotics materials. We don't have much but we make the best of what we have.

My Project

I know that my students’ parents have had an extremely stressful time during our school closure. I want to take the stress out of shopping for school supplies in the fall. I want to try and obtain some of the basic supplies for them so that the parents don’t have to worry about It. I want “back to school” time to be an exciting time... not a stressful one. Please help me stockpile necessary supplies for my students and help my parents out at the same time. I want to be a blessing to my students’ families during these very difficult times.
