My Students

I teach Spanish to high school students. They are so eager and excited to learn a new language and to be able to put it into practice in their community and with their friends.

I teach in an inner city school and most of my students are African-American or Hispanic.

All of my students come from disadvantaged backgrounds and receive free lunch. There is a lot of gang violence and crime in the surrounding neighborhoods, but my students are motivated to learn. They are eager to master a new language!

My Project

My students will benefit so much from having access to hand sanitizer and hand sanitizing wipes so that they can stay clean and germ free. It would be great to be very helpful to sanitize surfaces before the students use them.

Students learn better when they have a clean working area that they know is clean germ free.

Students desks often become dirty from the lead from pencils and ink from pens and markers. I like to clean and sanitize all of the desks at the end of the school day and having these materials will allow me to do that!
