My Students

I teach Academic Intervention Services to students in grades K-5. Our rural elementary school in upstate New York has a student population of 340 students. Students who are at risk of failing the New York State Assessments and students who are having difficulty academically are recommended to receive Academic Intervention Services.

My students come from diverse economic backgrounds, with a significant number of students who receive free or reduced-price lunch.

Our school, similar to other schools across the country, has homeless students who are hungry for food and hungry for learning. Sometimes, homelessness just happens...a parent loses their job, a family member becomes ill and can't work. We have students throughout the year who find themselves and their families in this situation. Suddenly, they become homeless.

All of our students are eager to learn and love coming to school. Our students are independent, hard-working, and compassionate. Our school is much more than a building where learning takes place. For many of our students, our school is where they feel safe, where they obtain nourishment, and where they are loved.

My Project

We have several students that are in need of certain items of clothing in order for them to feel more confident in themselves and to feel as if they are not different from their peers.

These students need clean clothes to change into either when they come to school or when their clothes become badly soiled during the day.

This is sometimes the result of a bathroom or lunch accident, but it can also be as a result of the economic challenges that many of our families have to endure on a daily basis. These families do not have the extra money needed to bring clothes to the laundry mat frequently or to buy laundry detergent.

Having clean clothes to change into at school will help these students feel more confident in themselves. They will then be able to focus more on their learning, rather than on whether or not the peer next to them notices that they are wearing soiled clothes.

The materials I have requested include leggings and tops. The requested items will provide these students with a chance to become more self-confident learners.
