I teach a class of 18 preschoolers in a Title I school in an urban setting in Virginia. Students in our school face many challenges, chief among them - poverty. Many of my students know firsthand the pain of hunger, fear, loss, and chaos. They are raised in families with two parents, step parents, single parents, incarcerated parents, and grandparents. They go home to houses, apartments, and sometimes motel rooms, to families of of 2 to 12. Often several families live in a space meant for one family so they do not become homeless. School is often the only safe and structured place they can go. Even with so many challenges, the students still come to school each day with a smile, eager to have a great day!
