My Students

Bright colored murals, beautiful garbs, fresh fruits and vegetables at the corner market and the smell of delicious Indian food coming from the nearby kitchen. This is the environment my students live in. Parkchester is a beautiful neighborhood that embodies the Indian culture. Unfortunately, my school is in a low-income neighborhood. Many of my students, a diverse mix of cultures too, attend a school that strives to give these eager students who are ready to learn an excellent education. Many of them are first-generation Americans and are excited to begin school!

My Project

Imagine sitting in a classroom all day sneezing, blowing your nose, itch eyes and not being able to breath because of a stuffy nose. Many of my students suffer from seasonal allergies. As i'm teaching I observe how awful they feel throughout the day. Many students have asked to put their heads down during instruction because they just cannot focus. Having a cool must humidifier, a diffuser with essential oils, and rock salt lamps in the classroom can help them breath better! Humidifiers ensure clean and healthy air quality, exactly what some of my students need. A diffuser with essential oils is an excellent, all natural and safe way to treat allergy symptoms. This is a great way to help my students feel better so they can get a quality education no matter how they feel.
