My Students

I work with students that are very energetic and enthused individuals, however their surroundings do not offer a lot of opportunity for growth. My students are some of the most amazing individuals you could come across. Unfortunately, most people don't get to see the softer sweeter side of them. A large majority of the students live in low income, high crime, gang, and drug communities in the Boston area.

Our school is a place where they can feel safe, loved, and cared for.

It is also a place they can be themselves, feel good about school, feel comfortable learning in our small class environment. We are a therapeutic school for student that are on I.E.P's who have cognitive, social emotional diagnosis.

They sometimes have a hard time communicating their feelings because of that they sometimes hide what problems they may be facing at the moment like being hungry or not able to get proper hygiene products.

I believe that my students would be appreciative if I was able to provide the things that they use daily but are not regularly available.

My Project

If my project is funded it would be greatly appreciate by my students. Some of my students don't eat regularly at home and don't practice daily hygiene routines. When my students don't feel their best because of these problems like being hungry and not being able to brush their teeth that morning they begin to display behaviors to cover up what's really bothering them. It also begins to affect their learning time and putting them in a bad mood. This causes them to have a bad day. If they know that I have things to help with their needs they are more apt to feel better about themselves in the classroom and society.
