PLAINFIELD, NJ — Dr. Amaro is a teacher at Plainfield High School.  According to her current campaign, her students love to learn and the requested materials will help them develop good study habits, and teach them how to be creative and learn how to work cooperatively.

Her campaign is seeking $539.98, and only needs $339.98 to be fully funded.  It needs to reach its goal by February 20, 2020.

Dr. Amaro says, "My extraordinary students are learning English as a second or third language. My students are from diverse backgrounds and their origins are from Latin America. They migrated to the United States in search of a better eduction, since in most of their countries the education system is limited due to lack of schools in rural areas. Some of my students fled extreme violence and corruption. They are caring, respectful and humble persons with a big kind heart."

She adds, "The majority of my students work after school and on the weekends in order to help their families and contribute to the household income.  They qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. These circumstances do not impede them from going to school every day and giving their very best in order to get a good education. They are hungry for knowledge and for learning English because they know that it will improve their lives and provide a better future."

Project Title: Creating English Language!

Teacher: Dr. Amaro

School: Plainfield High School, grades 9-12

Dr. Amaro's Project: The materials I am requesting will be used to learn English vocabulary, to provide notebooks for students who cannot afford one and to make learning in groups creative and full of color. Students will create projects using the duct tape, markers, pens, easel, index cards and other materials requested and will learn how to cite and find the main ideas while using their highlighters.

All the materials will be used as a classroom community and the notebooks and markers will be given to those students that do not have one for my class.

Project Goal:  $539.98

Still Needed:  $339.98
