My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I want to provide my students with engaging learning experiences.

Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My Project

This project is requesting cases of paper for our school. Teachers use paper and make copies on a daily basis in order to provide students with high-quality and necessary curriculum. In the past, due to budget cuts and lack of public funding, our school has run out of paper and teachers begin to purchase paper out of their own personal budget. This creates a financial burden for teachers and staff at our school. This project is requesting paper for the times when we run out of what has been provided to our school. Teachers at our school strive to always provide students with everything they need and you can be a part of that support by donating to this project.
