My Students

I work at an inner-city school with students who are struggling daily with having their basic needs met. We are currently dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and our community is struggling. These amazing kids are home all day and not always feeling safe and encouraged. They are missing out on so much. I love and miss my students and would love to stay connected.

In the past, I have been successful in encouraging my students with cards and small letters, either sent home or waiting at their desk.

During this pandemic, I would like to continue my efforts to connect with them and for them to know that they are never alone. Many of my students learn online and sit at computers for several hours. The school is taking care of the breakfast and lunch needs and I am hoping to fill the other voids that I can through messages of support and love. My students have taken ownership of their environment and I want them to continue to be proud of their success.

I love being a part of this amazing school, I love being a teacher to my students and I love being there for them.

My Project

My students are not able to be in the classroom with me and I know they are struggling daily with their school work to keep motivated during quarantine. I have been calling, mailing and texting my students and they are missing school and their friends.

My students need to know that they are not alone, that I care and that I am still here for them.

My students suffered through the Flint water crisis and are now sorting through this pandemic.

I want to mail them hope and encouragement, but I need your help. With your support, I can have enough motivational cards, letters, and smiles to send to their homes to keep their hearts filled until I can see them again.
