My students come from all over the world. They are all recent immigrants to the United States who are now facing the toughest years of schooling in a new language. My students struggle with academic content because of the challenge of learning a new language and academic content in that new language at the same time. I teach refugees and asylum seekers from Nepal, Burma, Central America, Syria and Congo to name a few places. They love to learn, and are appreciative of their opportunities in the United States.

What will funds be used for

My students are immigrants to the country. There is a mixture of refugees, asylum seekers, and unaccompanied minors. Donations will help to ensure that these students always have the materials they need throughout the school year.
