My Students

Hello friends!

Martin Luther King once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'"

Next year, I will be teaching middle school english/social studies in Los Angeles, California. As a sixth grade teacher, they will be entering their very first year of middle school. I will be working with about sixty different students in an ethnically linguistically diverse, and low income community. As an educator, I believe that the liberal arts is a powerful tool to promote civic engagement, public service, and social justice.

My Project

I am looking for health and hygiene products specifically for adolescent students.

Everybody can remember every uncomfortable part of middle school and the wonder that is puberty.

I believe that it is important to create a classroom where the "growing pains" of middle school are not an obstacle to learning in the classroom. Most of my students come from low-income homes where access to quality hygiene and nutrition products can be difficult. I would like to give my students access to deodorant for their changing bodies. I also selected feminine hygiene products as when females often have their period, they are charged by the nurse or office for uncomfortable and outdated products. Lastly, I selected nutrition bars as an important classroom resource. As students are growing and changing, it is essential to nourish their bodies with healthy nutrients to help maintain focus and energy.
