My Students

I am a teacher at a small country school in South Texas. I teach about 90 students, which makes up the entire middle school. My students come from all walks of life. I have students who are farmers and ranchers, some whose parents commute to cities 1 -2 hours away to work, and many students who live at a children's home and attend our school. The average income for my students is very low, and many students even struggle to get paper and pencils.

Even though there is not very much money in our school, the students and teachers are like a big family.

The students will give what little they have to help others without a selfish thought, and the staff would too. We have had tragedies occur within our student body, and every one of my students pitched in to help the families affected in one way or another.

When it comes to school spirit and participation, these students have it. The majority of my students participate in at least one extracurricular activity, and many even participate in at least two or more.

My Project

The basic supplies for this project are to benefit all of my students. I have many that struggle to bring in needed supplies and am hoping these will help them succeed.

In my class, we do many different activities such as computer games, virtual labs, reading text, writing, and even hands-on science labs.

The clipboards are for the students to help during lab stations. Many struggles to keep their papers neat and clean while moving from station to station.

The pencils are for day to day assignments and the sharpies or to help students complete project and group activities.
