Mr. Traore from Hazel Park MI is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need backpacks for college next year most of them will enter college for the first time and are the first in their families as well.
Our students are from a variety of different backgrounds. 90% of our students are first-generation college students. The school is also one of the most diverse schools in our district. My students come from all around the city which is very difficult for some students. After school, they have to wait hours and hours before getting a ride home. I work in a large and densely populated school where togetherness and pride are the shared value.
Most of my students are committed to teamwork and inclusiveness, working together, and helping each other for collective success, which makes my students special.
The school population is half caucasian half African American. 90% are first-generation students willing to learn and attend college to change their lives and their families' stories as well. We have a very dynamic student body I am proud to work with.
These backpacks will be life savers knowing that most of my students will enter college excited as everyone else.
We would like to make sure that no student is left behind due to the lack of basic school supplies when entering college for the first time.
As first-generation college students coming from low-income backgrounds, it is nice to provide them with the basic needs for college. We don't want to see any student demotivated because he or she doesn't have a nice backpack as everyone else.
We believe that we can only change the world, achieve more and advance knowledge across the nation if the playing field is even. My students are brave young men and women doing outstanding work despite the fact that they are lacking everything one might need to succeed.
