My Students

Our school is an urban public school with a diverse population. This is why this school is so special. The teachers and staff are very committed to all of the students. Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with 100% of our students receiving free lunch.

I am a Special Education Teacher working with students with Specific Learning Disabilities from Kindergarten to 3rd grade.

Most of my students learn best with visual aids. My project will provide my students with the technology that they really need! Technology can make abstract and difficult concepts welcoming and make learning more effective and lasting.

In the last few months, we have had a lot of students entering our school from Puerto Rico, where they had to escape the devastating Hurricane Maria. My students from Puerto Rico are learning English in my classroom!

My Project

My amazing students need copy paper so they can do their assignments and projects in my class. I also need this copy paper to print our their IEP's.

This paper will really be helpful for classwork activities.

I also need pencils and an electric sharpener so my students can be successful in my classroom.

My new students from Puerto Rico love to learn and these supplies will be really helpful and to my other students. All of your support is extremely appreciated! Thank you in advance for your donations! You are making a difference in the lives of these amazing students.
