My Students

Our school is a Title I school located in a lower-socioeconomic (high poverty) area in Salem, OR. Many of our students come from bilingual households where their first language is Spanish. Many of our students have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, and far more adverse childhood experiences than any person should.

My classroom is made up of 25 energetic bilingual kindergarten students.

They are amazing individuals who come with many differences. As bilingual students, they are building their identity as multilingual and multicultural learners. These students are paving the way to create awareness of a cultural and linguistic society. I am honored to serve them and share a classroom with them.

Kindergarten is where the adventure begins! Your generous donations and support will help me create a dream learning experience for all my students.

My Project

As we get further into the school year, our cabinet of basic supplies is becoming smaller and smaller. Many students won’t have the resources at home to help replace the supplies. Your contribution will help us fill our supply cabinet, fill our hearts, and provide us with essential tools for learning in an organized classroom!

Help restock our school supply cabinet!

Classroom supplies run out faster than my school can replace them. So having a stocked classroom of basic supplies will provide the necessary tools and resources to support our learning community for a long time. Supplies like, expo markers, glue sticks, staplers, paper, and erasers are all supplies that will help our class run smoothly! I know these sound like basic supplies, but they are priceless to our community​ of learners.
