My Students

My students love to come to school! I know that seems weird to say about high school students, but they love to come to learn new things, to see their friends, and for most, to get two warm meals.

My students come to school with smiles on their faces regardless of what has happened at home before they come to school.

We have about a 90% poverty level in the town in which I teach. My students become my kids, and I will do everything I can to help them.

My Project

My classroom needs a new laptop. We use the laptops to help many of our students to complete essays and homework. The laptops are used to apply for employment to help the students become betters citizens in our community. The laptops are used daily.

We need to help social skills.

We are asking for the puzzles to help develop social skills. The students love to work on puzzles together, while sitting at a table putting the pieces together they talk rather than looking at an electrical device. We are asking for the games to learn the same social skills as well as learning math skills.

We are asking for the food items to help with students that are hungry. So many of our students are at school to learn, but many can't pay attention because their stomach is growling or hurting. We make bags for our students to take home at night and the weekends.
