My Students

My students show up every day excited to learn. For many, this is their safe haven. More than half of our school population receives free breakfast, lunch, and second lunch.

My students find my classroom to be their safe place.

I want to give them the tools that they need to be successful every day. I want them to become successful adults with careers in which they can support themselves and their family.

The students are here 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week. I want to give them every educational opportunity despite their parents' income levels.

Our community was affected by Hurricane Harvey.

My Project

I teach third grade and have several students who read on a first grade reading level. I am sure you can imagine the frustration I see daily as my students struggle to read basic words. The Osmo program is an amazing tool that will help them have fun while filling in the missing gaps of two years in reading. We have been blessed with one iPad and two Osmos . I am trying to get one more iPad so I can use the Osmos as my technology center. Anything donated is greatly appreciated. The students are the key to our future.
