My Students

My students are amazing little people. They are resilient and have been through so much. Our school is located in Paradise, California. Our entire town and a lot of our school was destroyed in the recent Camp Fire.

However, these little angels are safe and still coming to our temporary school.

They have their usual smiles, hugs, and tears. They're full of love and fill my heart with happiness! Please consider this donation to help me do my job as best as possible!

My Project

Please help our classroom get a new class rug. My classroom in Paradise, California burned down in the recent Camp Fire. 90% of our students lost their homes. We have set up a temporary classroom at a nearby site and we desperately need a new class rug. As of now my students are sitting on blue painters tape!

In kindergarten we don't have desks.

We spend the majority of our time on the classroom rug together. We need a nice big rug with individual spaces for each child! Please consider donating to our sweet kiddos! Thank you for the consideration.
