My Students

This year is my 22nd year in education. It is a blessing to spend my days at this beautiful community school in the spectacular mountains of Western North Carolina. My drive to work is full of beautiful landscapes. My school is kindergarten through fifth grade, with fewer than 150 students. Our families are full of pride but times are difficult and some students are considered homeless.

We may be small, but our dreams are big.

The community is deeply invested in the education and nurturing of each student. Economic status does not provide a barrier to learning; instead, it provides a challenge this school accepts on a daily basis. With your help, we can give these deserving students everything they need!

I am requesting a $300 credit to order books through Scholastic.

I plan to purchase books for all students in our small, community school. We will be hosting various parent nights for each grade level this winter. Our school has fewer than 130 students. I would like to send my students home after they attend the informational parent night with a variety of books on their individual reading levels. I know the importance of literacy and quality reading materials in the home. Many of my students do not have access to books so sending home books will improve their reading skills. Since we are a school of Science and Technology, I will focus on these themes. The books will be on various reading and interest levels so each student will get a book suited for him/her.
