My Students

My students attend a Title I school in Philadelphia and almost all receive free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast. They attend a typical inner-city school. Most face serious obstacles before they even walk through​ the doors in the morning. Our goal is to make our school a safe and loving environment.

Our students come from diverse backgrounds and different countries.

This makes our school pretty special in so many ways. The students all work so hard and are very deserving of this project.

My Project

Some of my students are in between homes or are currently homeless so when they get to school they are not clean and many are hungry. Items like hand sanitizer, face wipes, and body wash will be handed out to any child who needs these supplies to stay clean. Items like toothbrushes, chapstick and hair ties seem like items that aren't a big deal to us but to my students, they can change their whole day. So many kids come to school dirty and cannot focus on their learning. They then become discipline issues. If we have items to maintain cleanliness they can come and get what they need and then get right into their classes and work.
