My Students

My students are eager to learn and highly motivated. They fell behind because of poverty and lack of learning resources.

My students know education can help them.

They are willing to learn more to help their families. They need supplies to help them learning.

My Project

The use of pencils, rulers, protractors and graphing paper is almost a daily activity in my Geometry classroom. Students need these supplies to help them measure the length of a line segment, to construct different geometric shapes on their daily Geometry learning. Besides, students could understand the properties of triangles better when they can build a sturdy triangle by themselves. Using popsicle sticks is the best way to do the project in the class.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
