My students are a mix of personalities. Some are shy and others are gregarious. Some are serious and some are goofy. They are still testing out their personas, so to speak, but they are a tough bunch. Maybe they have to be since we are located in the South Bronx. We are a Title I school in a not yet gentrified area. It is unfortunate that our students have to walk past addicts and discarded drug paraphernalia on their way to school.
Our school provides them with a sanctuary that allows them to grow and learn.
We are 6-12 school so we have the opportunity to watch these students grow from children to young adults. Since we are a relatively small school, we get to know the students, their siblings, and their families. There is a good sense of community at our school.
Clorox keeps us clean and healthy with their disinfecting wipes. Airborne particles from coughs and sneezes land on table surfaces and can remain viable for hours. We will use these wipes to clean our tables frequently during cold and flu season.
A cleaner classroom environment will reduce the number of absences due to illness and improve student achievement.
Along with the Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, students need a constant supply of Puffs Plus Lotion Tissues for drippy noses.
Snacks like Kaimana Jerky Ahi Tuna, Krave Jerky, Sahale Snacks All Natural Nut Blends Grab And Go Variety Pack, and Off The Eaten Path Veggie Crisps are healthy snacks that will give my students energy to last through the day.
