My Students

We are a seaside community that has been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Our island town doesn't have a single home that was left undamaged. Many of my students homes are still uninhabitable almost a year after the storm.

We thought that restarting school would add a sense of normalcy to the chaos that permeates our students' lives.

In some ways it has.

One of the things I've noticed since we've restarted is that our kids are dealing with more than we ever expected.

My Project

Since the hurricane last year, our enrollment has increased dramatically. With this increase in students, comes the need for more of our basic necessities. Add to this factor that in the past, teachers have taken their own money to buy these necessities. This year because most of the teachers are still dealing with their own personal hurricane stories, these funds have become non-existent for most.

FIle folders, markers, flags and sentence strips are something we have had in abundance in the past.

This year they are hard to find in our school.

Our library was severely damaged and we lost almost all of our books. Through donations we received class sets, but with the increase in enrollment these numbers were not sufficient.
