With a school population of 15% of students in temporary housing, 37% as English language learners, and 40% having disabilities, I am determined to ensure the best possible experiences for my students. As research shows, children need to be engaged and motivated to learn. In addition, students are known to thrive best when they are welcomed into an environment that supports their everyday needs whether they be physical, social, emotional, or academic.
While our motto stands firm in that "Every child has a point of entry to success," as an educator, I also know that point of entry can only be accessed through the right resources, resources that In turn will make the classroom a place of wondrous possibilities!
It was once stated by Robert John Meehan that "Teaching children is an accomplishment; getting children excited about learning is an achievement." In a world where the innocence of children can so easily be replaced, it is my desire to ensure that students that come from the above population are provided opportunities. Opportunities that allow them to understand and experience the joy of the world both inside and outside of the classroom.
Students come to school to learn and they should be able to do so in a safe and clean environment. Now more than ever there is a need for extra precaution and safety measures. In an effort to ease the anxiety of an already tense situation, I would like to provide my students with some of the basic health and hygiene items to make our learning environment as germ-free as possible. This project, if funded, will allow for my students to have disinfectant wipes to sanitize high touch areas in the classroom.
The following was once stated by an unknown author "safety isn't expensive, it's priceless" a saying that couldn't be truer during these times.
By funding this project, you will help ease the pressure of this pandemic for a group of deserving students. Please help my students get the supplies they need to be safe while in school.
