My students come from many walks of life. The students I serve each day attend a Title I school in the highest poverty area in The Bronx, New York. They are faced with hardships almost daily; nevertheless, they show up, eager and ready to learn.
I am all for encouraging our students to work towards their goals, and I join right in by helping them with coping strategies to help keep them focused and making the right decisions.
This helps them academically and social-emotionally as well.
They are truly eager beavers, as well as a fun and diverse group of learners. I believe that small group work is a great way to provide academic intervention and reinforce their self-confidence.
My 6th graders are going through puberty and many are just learning to manage their menstrual cycles. They are learning to listen to their bodies and predict the patterns of their periods. However there are inevitable accidents that can be extremely embarrassing and traumatic.
This supply of Always Maxi Pads, Scoopneck Tees, and Hanes Women's Stretch Jersey Leggings will ensure that my students will have a change of clothes for those incidents.
Fresh, clean clothes will give them pride and confidence. Only when my students feel safe and comfortable are they able to focus their academics.
