My Students

My school is a large Title I school where eighty percent of the students live below the poverty line. My students are academically and economically diverse. Many of them face situations that no child should ever face, like being temporarily homeless. Yet, they are also hardworking, enthusiastic young people full of potential and possibilities. They have lots of life and energy.

They love to learn, especially in new and exciting ways, and they recognize that they are part of a larger, generous community.

Please consider helping me to make this their best year ever!

My Project

My students are at a tough age where their bodies are beginning to change and they are struggling to fit in with others. Many of them go home to empty houses due to parents working one and sometimes multiple jobs. Therefore, sometimes their clothes aren't washed in a timely manner or they may lack products that most of us would consider basic necessities like soap and deodorant. My hope is that with this project, I will be able to keep a few sticks of deodorant and bars of soap in my classroom closet and students will be able to grab one when they need it. I also hope to be able to use the detergent to wash my students' sweatshirts in our school washer when they need it. Every child should feel clean everyday so that they can just focus on school.
