My Students

I teach middle school low-income students that are looking for new avenues for learning. My students are eager to challenge their minds and their thinking on topics that interest them most. Often times they engage in academic activities due to compliance's sake; however, my students often voice their interest in engaging activities they can directly relate with. This is the reason I am looking to incorporate resources that will further expose them to in-the-now situations they can directly connect with.

My students have a hard time building educational resources of their own in their homes due to a lack of financial stability.

Their main source of rich learning resources is usually what I can offer, which can sometimes be pretty limited. On one occasion I had an eighth-grade student bring in a garbage bag full of books he had gradually taken from our classroom library over the school year. Although impressed, I felt a bit heartbroken that he had not had the rich text to be able to keep in his household.

I believe the sky is the limit for my children as long as they are provided the necessary resources to push them forward!

My Project

Hi Donors! Help me plant a seed of building financial wealth within the minds of my young scholars. As we begin our road to developing small businesses amongst our 8th graders we are looking for ideas that will pique their interest. That is why we are asking donors to assist us with purchasing the Slendor Heat Press along with necessary accessories to jump-start their business ideas.

The Slendor Heat Press will give my students the opportunity to develop their own unique brands that they will be able to market to their targeted audiences.

With this seed, we will be able to open doors to access new ways to build financial wealth that will pique the interest of my scholars. Help us get a jump start toward learning the ways of the economy.
