My Students

My students attend an inner city school in a high poverty school district. We are a school that serves children in grades K-5. As a teacher in this type of learning environment, it is very difficult to compete with the other more affluent school districts.

My children are energetic, eager to learn, and willing to accept the difficult challenges that come their way.

It is because of their willingness, I have become a better teacher and want the best for their future. We are moving "Onward and Upward" to reach for the stars.

My Project

With the warmer weather on the horizon, our gym will be getting hotter soon. Please help supply our classroom with two pedestal fans that will help cool us off after our Physical Education class.

My students love to be active and are always giving their all.

My sweaty betties need to have some relief and these fans could give them just the relief they need.

These pedestal fans will also create a healthier atmosphere in the gym. With these fans, the air will be able to circulate thus causing a cleaner environment for my students. This cleaner environment will help with breathing and help maintain various illnesses.
