My Students

In my classroom, we recite The Learner’s Creed every day: “I believe in myself, and my ability to do my best. I will think. I will listen. I will read. I will write. I will do all these things, with one purpose in mind. To do my best, and not waste this day. For this day will not come any more.”

As a teacher in a Title I school, I am very aware that many of my students are facing hardships.

Children living in temporary housing, that come to school hungry, and do not have the basic tools needed for their education.

Despite any obstacle they may face, when my students walk through my classroom door they are a scholar! I continue to provide student-centered, rigorous instruction aligned with standards-based learning activities. These are the future leaders of our world. We must support them to rise to their highest potential!

My Project

My students need some basic supplies such as Clorox wipes, paper towels, and hand soap to help stay clean and germ-free! Every so often a child has an accident in school and needs a spare set of clothes. It's not easy for parents to leave work and come bring it to them. It would be nice to have some extra clothing articles in the room in case of an emergency. We also have a rug in our classroom that gets dirty and is occasionally swept. A vacuum would be extremely useful to suck up the dirt and allergens from the carpet.

We could easily go through a package of baby wipes a day!

The kids are always wiping their hands, faces, noses, and desks with wipes.
