My students are absolutely amazing. As a first year teacher, I have been blessed with some excellent students and some students who I know are meant to teach me how to be a better teacher. I feel so lucky to be able to work with them inside the classroom and see them achieve great things outside of it. One of the first true lessons I learned as a teacher were to forgive without my students asking for it.
I know that all they want from me is love and acceptance and it makes me truly thankful that I can offer them those two things in my classroom.
One things that breaks my heart for my students is knowing the things they have had to go through so far. Many of my students are listed as homeless, and a few even have children at this young age. Just today a student told me she self-harms, and it makes me ache on the inside. By helping my classroom, you, a complete stranger, are telling my students that you care about them and their futures. And I think that speaks for itself.
My students learn nutrition and wellness courses. To go along with that, they need many supplies to clean and maintain the 7 kitchens we have in our classroom. We are extremely fortunate to have a brand new building and with that comes the responsibility of keeping it clean.
The spray disinfectants will help us clean counter tops and tabletops clean of germs and food particles.
The laundry detergent will keep the seemingly never-ending laundry fresh for use, and new wash cloths will help with keeping the room maintained. The foil will be used in the ovens to help keep any food particles from falling to the bottom and burning.
