My Students

My students come from a low income, high-poverty part of the city, where they need opportunities to succeed. Young children need to start their learning journey early.

I teach at a Title I school in Virginia, where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

For some of my students, this is their first school experience, and I want to make it a great one. They really enjoy school and learning. As little learners,​ they also love to read, write and grow.

My Project

I teach very little learners and they always do not understand why they want something and yet they cannot have it.

Young children need to start their financial literacy journey early so they can begin to understand the difference between a want and a need.

I have requested some counting books because in order to begin to understand money they need to know how to count. The books that support financial literacy will help explain where money comes from and that we must first use our money on what we need and not on what we want. The cash register will provide lots of opportunities for them to be engaged and practice with money.

Please help us start our financial literacy journey.
