My Students

In a Title I school, I have the privilege of instructing students in grades ninth through twelfth. Many of my students come from low-socioeconomic families and encounter many difficulties outside of the classroom, which affects how they learn in the classroom. No matter how difficult life maybe for them, they have a strong desire to learn and let it influence their destiny.

In the classroom, all of my students work hard to overcome any challenges they face outside the classroom.

They're dedicated students who don't have easy access to learning tools. I want all of my students to succeed, so I make sure they have access to the instruction and tools they require. I genuinely care about them and strive to be a positive influence in their lives.

My Project

The comfort care closet was developed to assist our school's students with any self-care products they may require. Students have access to personal hygiene goods such as toothbrushes, deodorants, personal hygiene kits, toothpaste, and laundry detergent in this closet. Our goal with the comfort care closet is to maintain a constant supply of things so that our kids can access them whenever a need arises. The goods in this closet are freely available to our scholars. Students can request materials with the assurance that confidentiality protocols will be followed.

There is comfort in knowing that our students can access it.

There is always a need, and to meet that need, we would like to supply our comfort Care closet with food products in addition to personal care supplies. Our children will be able to purchase snacks, ready-to-eat meals, soup, and beverages to take home at any time.
