My Students

Against all odds, my students show up to school happy and eager to learn each and every day. I have anywhere between 22-24 students who love being with their teachers and classmates. My students want to feel successful and proud, and it is my responsibility to ensure they have the tools they need to reach these objectives. The worst feeling a teacher can have is not being able to execute a fantastic lesson due to lack of materials. My students deserve better and with your help, their dreams are possible.

My Project

These primary Composition notebooks will make such an impact in my classroom. These notebook are hard to find and they can become somewhat expensive. These notebooks will help my students monitor their writing progress and they can share their writing results with each other. These book are so desperately needed for younger students! We would be so thankful and appreciative!

The Sight-Words and Syllable-Count Instant Learning Centers make learning how to read and write their first sight words fun!

These tools go hand and hand when writing our first stories. When children have the tools they need they feel successful and there is no better feeling than that!
