My Students

I teach third grade in an inner city community. All of my students are English Language learners and qualify for free school lunch. They have many difficult challenges in and out of school setting. Our school is located in a low socioeconomic community, resources are scarce and my students do not always have the supplies they need to succeed. My student's families are very hard working but often have difficulties making ends meet, many of them work multiple jobs and do not always have the time or resources to volunteer at school.

My Project

Preparing my students for college is very important. College can often be a distant dream for many of my students, most of them will be the first ones in their families to attend college. Our school has a large college and career day festival in order to get our students excited for the future.

My students need uniform red shirts to wear during our college and career day presentation.

We also need college pennants, #1 signs, and Pom Poms for our school rally. This event is very important because it gets our students to think about the future and where they will be in 10 years. With your support, we can motivate my students to start thinking about their future.
