My Students

Our school is a Title I school with 90% of our nearly 800 students receiving free or reduced-price breakfasts and lunches. Many of my students live in poorly kept, crumbling apartments and are able to come to our beautiful school for eight hours a day and catch up on their basic vocabulary, social and formal English, numeric and alphabetic knowledge and skills along with problem-solving and many more skills we take for granted. These children are bright, beautiful and very eager to learn. When they leave me at the end of the year they will be reading, comprehending and retelling texts, writing their own books, adding and subtracting and so much more!

These children are the future of their family's climb from poverty!

We emphasize higher education beginning in my kindergarten class and they will move through our grade levels excelling at amazing speeds! I spend hundreds of hours planning for their success and problem solving any barriers that they may face. DonorsChoose provides such opportunities for us as a community to provide fun and unique higher level learning opportunities to encourage their rapid development.

My Project

Dry erase markers are consumables and are not on the school supply list. The school is unable to provide the markers to our class and the few they do provide takes weeks to arrive.

I have 2 kindergarten classes that I teach reading, writing, and math to and we use dry erase markers in each of those subjects.

We are practicing how to write high-frequency words, make complete sentences, circle words we know on chart poems, stretch out sounds of cvc words, write numbers and shapes, and add and subtract.

The dry erase markers are used by the students in all areas of the classroom whether in direct instruction or during independent practice. Your donation is greatly needed and will be greatly appreciated!
