My Students

Our school is a really great place, and I am always trying to improve upon our learning environment to make it the best experience possible for my students.

I teach in a fifth-grade regular education, special education, and English Language Learner inclusion classroom.

I have students that come from many different backgrounds. By the time they get to fifth grade, some of them begin to realize that they are behind their classmates. It is my passion to change that and help all of them be successful.

My Project

According to the Environmental Protection Agency website: More than 1/2 of schools in the U.S. have problems linked to indoor air quality, and that due to their prolonged exposure in these environments, this indoor air can play a role in both students' health and overall performance.

Many of my students have asthma and even more have allergies.

I want to be able to provide them with a safe and healthy learning environment.

The air quality of a classroom can play a major role in both student health and academic success. Many sources of indoor air pollution can also trigger students' asthma and allergy symptoms. Thus, many students miss a lot of school time during the year because of these health-related issues. I am requesting MinusA2 Artists Series Air Purifier for our classroom. This air purifier will help provide a much cleaner and healthier work environment for all my students (especially those with asthma and allergies), and will hopefully improve attendance throughout the year.
