Dreams don't work unless you do. -unknown
Years of experience
Students this year
I am a first generation high school graduate and first generation college graduate. I teach at my high school Alma Mater. My dream was to help encourage students like myself to further their dreams by succeeding in high school and moving on to the college or vocation of their choice. I am living my dream. I love teaching. I love mentoring my students.
How will funding help my students?
The first part of the funds is for 5-star interactive notebooks. This will cost about $400. We use our interactive notebooks daily and I learned last school year many of the students cannot purchase the notebooks in those first few weeks of school. I purchased the majority of my students’ notebooks at a lot higher cost than this discounted price I’ve been able to find.
The remainder will help with school supplies such as pencils (we went through 5,000 last school year), glue, markers and pencil colors. I also need a new costly classroom pencil sharpener these run about $150. The smaller sharpeners will not last a few weeks. We also need some lab materials for those first few weeks.
I feel like I’m asking for a lot for my classroom, but this is the total I paid out of pocket last year. If I can get any help to cover these costs it would be greatly appreciated. I believe an student can learn; we just need to provide the materials for them to be successful. Please help me help my student be successful this coming school year 2019-2020.
