My Students

The students in my class are a wonderful group of children. They love to learn new things and to experience new opportunities. My students face barriers that can potentially hinder their educational progress. Many of them come from high-poverty families. There are students of every racial background in our school. Some of the students are learning to speak English at school and speak other languages at home. Some of them are from other countries such as Honduras, Mexico, Somalia, Bosnia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria. Others have special needs.

Our school is a second home for many of the children.

It is where they feel safe and loved and know that they can try new things.

Education is very important to the families at our school. They chose our school, a neighborhood charter school, because of its diversity, high standards for behavior, and excellent instruction. Our school is very much a community. There are about 400 students in our school in grades kindergarten through eighth grade. All of the children in our school come from the local historic urban neighborhood.

My Project

Our school has a uniform that is fairly simple. Our students wear a green polo provided by the school and khaki pants or shorts. The uniform helps our students to feel part of the community of the school.

Some of our families struggle with providing their child with simple school clothes, such as uniform pants and socks.

It is especially hard when the children have an accident at school and have to change, or when they get dirty and the family can't do laundry just yet. Or, sometimes, the children outgrow their clothes and the family can't afford to buy new just yet. Being able to provide basic clothing would help the children to be clean, comfortable and confident at school. Wearing fresh clothes helps the students to feel better about themselves and to focus more on academics.
