I have been teaching at North Tamarind Elementary since 1995. I have been teaching 1st grade for 23 out of my 24 years. One year I thought 2nd grade. I'm starting to have some of the 2nd generation students. The first time this happened, I was literally floored. I have had at least 5 sets of families where I had the parent when they were in 1st grade and in the last few years had their son or daughter in my class. One of the things that I get to say to those students is "Oh, I remember, your mom/dad was also good at reading, writing, or math. Or I also say, "Wait, your mom/dad did not behave like I want to give the North Tamarind Cougars the best opportunity possible to be successful after they leave my 1st grade class. If you have the means, please consider us for your donation and we will make sure we make the most out of the donations we receive. Thank you for your consideration!!!

What will the funds be used for

I will like to receive donations so I can implement Literacy Centers in my classroom. With the implementation of Literacy Centers I will be able to focus on small group instruction and meet with all my students academic needs, even if they are working at above level standards.
