My Students

Students in my classroom come from 15 different Native American tribes in South Dakota, North Dakota, and Nebraska. They live nine months of every year at school, with little to no contact with their families. They come from a variety of home lives but come to school with the hope of a brighter future. Many of my students have become accustomed to not having the newest resources or technology, but they still persevere.

Within a few months of being in my classroom, they learn that they can achieve things that many thought they never would.

They are reading harder books (sometimes even their first chapter book), doing harder math problems, and are able to do their own research on things that interest them.

My Project

I am requesting an air purifier and replacement filters. Being a boarding school we are faced with the unique challenge that our students live together, therefore making it super important to keep the air in our classroom clean in the event that someone would exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 as they are frequently together in one building, therefore one sick student could result in many.

Our school administration has done a superb job of providing us with masks, other PPE, hand sanitizer, a safe place for students to recover away from others and numerous resources to prevent the spread of COVID-19, however having an air purifier in our classroom would add another layer of protection.

I appreciate your consideration in donating to this project as we want to be able to keep our students safely on campus the whole year if possible!!
