My Students

My students are amazing scholars that are eager to learn and take on new challenges! They come from varied backgrounds, from their culture and ethnicity, yet they all share the same love for learning and becoming better versions of themselves.

We are a Title I school, which means we have high financial needs and limited resources.

Even with this challenge, my students are eager to take on every opportunity. Thanks to sites like DonorsChoose, and those who support us, we are able to provide these necessary opportunities to our amazing students!

My Project

This project is geared toward supporting our middle school basketball team. Over the years, basketballs have been worn down and the team is currently in possession of one regulation basketball. To help get our student-athletes in a place where they can compete, we need to provide them with the basic gear in order to play.

Our goal is to provide students with a safe after-school activity that will allow them to have fun and learn how to properly compete.

We know that students do better in school when they are involved in organized activities. Next year, we are hoping to be able to continue our support for student growth.

Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
