My Students

My students are wonderfully motivated children in a very low-income area. They would be much more advanced in basic skills if they had more supplementary materials and comfortable work spaces. All of our students are on free lunch. They students are very eager to learn despite the neglect some get from home and the community. With only a small amount of outside intervention in the form of materials and support, I'm sure these students will exceed all expectations and prosper.

My Project

The school year has begun and my class has not been adequately supplied. As you know, students need basic school supplies in order to be successful in the school setting. The students need pencils, pencil sharpeners, dry erase markers, copying paper and a printer so that our daily activities can be done easily.

Having the necessary supplies in class will make the classroom more conducive to learning for all students.

Without the proper supplies, students and teachers can have a hard time functioning in class. School is the place that creates structure for all students. Without the proper supplies, the structure is at risk of failing.
