My Students

My students attend a Title I school, and almost seventy percent receive free or reduced price lunch and breakfast. They attend a magnet school which requires most students to maintain a B average throughout the year. The students are part of Pre-Med, Engineering, Environmental Science, or Computer Technology programs.

Our students come from the diverse backgrounds of thirty different countries.

This makes our school pretty special in so many ways. The students all work so hard and are very deserving of this project.

My Project

My students are the absolute best inner city kids who come from many different backgrounds. Unfortunately, we have way to many kids show up for class that are hungry. If a kid is hungry, it is almost impossible for them to be focused on their classwork. Since I started providing snacks like popcorn, crackers, goldfish and water, my kids can grab a snack and get to work. Their grades have gone up, and the behavior issues have gone down drastically. They know that at any given time they can come to my room for a healthy snack and go on their way.
