I work with a variety of high school-aged students who have various learning disabilities and individual education plans. As a result, my students receive educational services in either a sub-separate class or a resource room setting.
Many of my students come from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and could use additional support with reading and writing strategies to help them to access the grade level curriculum.
Some of my students have language disabilities, others experience challenges with attention, and others are on the autism spectrum. They are struggling readers and writers who, with the right tools and support can continue to make solid academic progress.
My students are sweet, funny, bright kids with diverse backgrounds and needs. Many are English Language Learners. They are a lively group of scholars and it's a pleasure to work with teens who want to do the necessary work to overcome their challenges in and out of the classroom.
My students often come to school without a chance to eat a good breakfast for various reasons. Having a place that they can go to and grab a quick snack without needing money, would be a huge help for many of them.
My students need snacks and a cabinet to store them.
It is hard for students to work when they have food on their mind. Allowing them to grab a quick snack from our cabinet would help solve their hunger issue and help them to focus back on their learning. Providing fuel for their bodies, helps to keep their minds ready and on track while in the classroom.
