I was born and raised in a family of wonderful educators. My mother inspired me to go into teaching, as well as my grandmother. Their love for learning, sparked a love I didn't know I had myself. I went to college and graduated with a B.A. on Art Education, upon graduating I got my first job teaching Art. I was in love but then quickly found if I wanted to further my career I had to go back to school to add-on to my certification. I then achieved my certificate in elementary education. Where this choice has lead me to my current classroom teaching fourth graders ELA and Social Studies. My students are a cultural mix of low income students, ESL students and middle class students. They often come to school with out supplies. I would love to give them the learning opportunities I had in my education. I love to incorporate Art into my learning but with that it gets quite expensive to fund. I do my best. I appreciate any assistance I can get with funding my classroom. Thank you to all who donate to classrooms, your donations can truly change the course of learning for a child.

What will the funds be used for
This funding will help me to bring more individual learning opportunities for students. To be able to have more specific goals for each of my students and to help them obtain their goals through hard work and focus. Also I will be able to add some technology into the classroom to provide some hands on digital learning.
