My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I want them focused and prepared to do their best. I want them to know that they can succeed NO MATTER WHAT!

I teach at a Title I school where all of my students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive food bags over the weekend.

Despite the many obstacles that my students face on a daily basis, they come to school to learn and do their best. They are eager to learn.

My Project

My students will learn about how people have made contributions to our world through these books. They will learn about the lives of others. Students will be able to understand how people change the world.

Your donation will help my students will see that no matter what your background is, you can make a difference in this world.

They will see that everyone is important and can contribute.

These books will help my students understand diversity. They will learn about others. These books will make reading enjoyable and understandable. Reading these books will inspire my students to change the world.
