My Students

I am a fourth grade teacher in a large, Pre-K-8 school. Most, if not all, of my students come from lower income families. Many of these children face poverty, violence, and obscenities of life on a daily basis; that are well beyond what most of us could imagine.

Despite all of that, they come to school hungry for knowledge trying to do their best to learn as I try to do my best to give them a good education and an introduction to the American way of life.

We are looking to get families to get involved in activities after school as well as within the school day.

With limited resources, there are many things that others consider basic parts of education that I am unable to provide without the assistance of others. Many of my students do not come to school fed, let alone with the correct school supplies needed to succeed. Their parents are not able to supply them with simple school supplies.

My Project

Students walk to and from school every day, some come with just a light jacket, others with a hoodie. We have done coat drives, but no one thought of the other essentials like hats, and gloves.

Hats, and gloves will protect students from the cold and make it so they get sick less often.

All of our students are walkers since we have neighborhood schools so let's keep them warm and healthy!

When students are out sick, they are missing out on an education. Help keep children in school by giving them what they need. We need hats and gloves so that students can walk to school and stay warm while doing so. Missing less school because they will not get sick because they were able to keep warm.
