My Students

My students are bright, creative, talented, bursting with energy and eager to learn but they are also faced with many challenges and special needs that have warranted them being placed in a substantially separate classroom. These obstacles that they face are daunting but each one of them has shown that they are up to the challenge.

I believe that each of these students is capable of rigorous academics and of overcoming their emotional impairments if they have the tools that they need to make it happen.

Please join me in providing them the classroom that they deserve... a classroom which will help them grow socially and emotionally so they can begin to grow academically. I can't wait to show them that they have a team of people that are willing to open up their hearts and wallets to support them in their education.

My Project

My students are bright and capable of amazing work. I have seen them grow by leaps and bounds since the beginning of the school year. They are all bound for success but need some tools to make it happen.

Due to their behavioral issues, they are not always able to access the only source of lead-free drinking water in the building without adult support.

The water bottles we are trying to provide will allow us to minimize the need for transition time and maximize the time spent on learning. With the winter fast approaching, they also need hats to keep them warm. Please help me give them the tools they need to succeed!
