Basic Needs First for Striving Students

Help me give my students snacks for their hungry brains and planners to stay organized!

My Students

I teach English language development to an amazing group of students who speak other languages, including many refugee and immigrant students. Many of them had severely interrupted schooling before they got here, so they are not only learning English and all of their school subjects in English, but they are also learning all other academic skills and subjects. They are eager to learn and deeply appreciative of the opportunities they have here at our school. My goal is to provide them with every opportunity and resource that they need to be successful in school, and in life.

My Project

Many of my students come to school hungry, and working through 90-minute periods on an empty stomach is not sustainable. My students are very driven and throw themselves into rigorous tasks with a lot of grit, but hunger is a distraction that no amount of determination can chase away.

As a teacher, I need to set my students up for success by meeting their primary needs first.

Having healthy snacks available will enable my students to focus on their goals in the classroom without the added stress of hunger. I am also asking for planners to help my students stay organized. They have an 8 period schedule to keep track of, as well as extracurriculars, jobs, and family responsibilities. Planners will support students' success across the board.
