My Students

As a teacher at a low-income high poverty area, my students are faced with both good and challenging situations. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. All the students at my school want a chance to enhance and reach for the stars.

I want my students to have a great advantage in education.

Many of them are being raised in foster care, single-parent homes, or with a close relative. The demographics in the areas where they live are not conducive to acceptable learning. When my students walk in my door, I want them to identify their exceptional characteristics, develop positive self-esteem, and feel they are cherished. I want them to know that my classroom is a heartfelt, inspiring, and encouraging environment where creativity is encouraged through self-expression and imagination.

My students want to experience their learning using hands-on activities. When I provide an atmosphere of involvement, their learning increases tremendously. Your donation will help give us the materials to make great thinkers and learning fun.

My Project

Eric Carle has such a amazing imagination. We are very fortunate enough that he is sharing it with the world in his books. I am asking that you donate to this project so that my current students and future student will be able to see and live in Eric Carle's beautiful imagination.

Reading is about being able to escape this world and travel into a new world.

These books will do just that. My class will read these books as a whole group and later on read them by themselves for extra practice. Thank you for your donation an advance.
