My Students

I teach in a rural area that receives over 80 percent free and reduced lunches. My students enter my room each day ready to learn. I always look forward to seeing their smiling faces. They are very creative and eager to gain knowledge.

My students take challenging problems and find solutions.

Their determination and drive motivates other students to work even harder. I enjoy teaching these students and consider myself blessed to be teaching such a great group of individuals.

My Project

My students are in need of a large size Combination Wrench Set. This wrench set would be a great asset to add to our classroom set of tools.

The larger Combination Wrench Set with 12 pieces will give my students the much needed tools to disassemble and reassemble larger industrial and mechanical systems that we previously could not work on because the needed tools were not available for us to use.

The Combination Wrench Set will help my students to better understand more complex ideas and gain skills as they complete projects and tasks. These skills they will learn will help them further their career as an industrial electrician.
