My Students

I have 22 wonderful students. They love coming to school, learning and working hard. Many of my students come from loving and hard-working families. They love to read books and listen to books being read to them. Many of them love to act out the stories we read in class. They also love to write stories.

Most of my students enjoy reading their stories to their partners.

My students love illustrating their stories. I love going to work every day because I love seeing them grow as students.

My Project

Last school year I was so delighted that my project for a food pantry was funded. So I decided that I would create another food pantry project for my students in the upcoming year. Many of the students in my school come from low-income households. With the pandemic going on, many of my students’ families are facing economical hardships. Many of my students are coming to school hungry. It broke my heart when one of my students wrote that their dream was to have a full refrigerator in their house. I would like to continue to send home food with my students. Therefore, I am requesting food items such as pasta, peanut butter, jelly, crackers, apple sauce, and nutrigrain bars. It is important to make sure all children have food. It is hard to learn when you are hungry.
