My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school. My students face challenges every day in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, they are so excited about school. School is a safe place for them, a place where no one can hurt them, physically or emotionally. All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch because for many students, school is the only place where they will be able to eat.

College starts in elementary school these days!

Students need to be introduced to a large variety of colleges early in their scholastic career to start to gain an understanding of how college will improve their lives.

They are hungry for knowledge and opportunity, but their background makes college an uphill battle. Our school is striving to make college preparedness part of their everyday lives.

My Project

The college pennants will hang all around our room to inspire students to learn about their favorite colleges. The students, who are in fifth grade, will also use their favorite colleges to study the fifty states. The students will learn about the states where their favorite colleges are and will be able to link the locations (on a map), mascots, and sports teams with their favorite colleges.

Donations will turn our classroom into an oasis of college possibilities.

College will go from being something students rarely hear about at home to common knowledge they start thinking about from fifth grade on. Our students' lives will become enriched by the real possibility of them picking a college they will attend one day will being in the fifth grade! Imagine looking forward to college from the time you were in elementary school!
