My Students

My students experience difficulties, both academically and socially. Their problems relate to their home situations, financial instability, poor parental involvement and lack of motivation. This transfers negatively to their learning.

As a teacher in a low-income/high-poverty school district with close to 100% of our students receiving free or reduced-price lunch and about 20% living in one of the four shelters around our school, I would like my students to experience learning in an enjoyable environment.

I want to provide activities where they will be engaged and thrilled and get the chance to change their negative feelings about learning into positive ones. My students need to believe in themselves. They need to know that they can be creative thinkers and assets to the community.

My Project

Our classrooms are cleaned daily by the custodians, but because the time allotted for each room is not sufficient to ensure a perfect, healthy environment, my students and I want to help enhance the challenge. The Lysol wipes would allow us to clean the inside and tops of our desks daily since we use glue, paint and other resources. We can use the mop with the cleaning solution to keep the tile floor clean throughout the day and the vacuum to clean the rugs. Magic erasers would help remove the scuffs on the floor. The disinfectant spray and scented oil would keep the room environment fresh and sanitary.

Students need a clean, healthy, refreshing, germ-free environment in order to work safely and comfortably.

The classroom is a breeding ground for germs, so keeping it clean daily would help reduce or eradicate them. We are ready to be armed with our rags, sponges, and cleaning solutions to make our classroom a welcoming, safe place to learn. Please help us make this possible and it will teach our kids safe, healthy habits.
