My Students

Many of my students come to me from low income families. Single parents are raising most of our students. Ten percent of my students live with a grandparent or a foster parent due to their parents being unfit. Most of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Throughout the year we are made aware of our homeless students. These students need extra care and attention.

I try to be an emotional support to as many of my students as I can.

I provide supplies to many of my students because they just don't have the money for school supplies. School supplies are a low priority when you are homeless and without other basic necessities. My students come to me without many of the skills they need for seventh grade. Around 60% of my students are below grade level. This is a result of many of them attending different schools throughout their education.

I am in a transient district, which adds to the struggles of the students who move around a lot. In order to catch my students up to grade level, I have to help them work on fluency and skills from lower grades.

My Project

I work in a school district where over 85% of my students are on free and reduced-price lunch. This means many of them get the majority of their meals at school. Throughout the year, we are made aware of students that are experiencing homelessness.

I keep food in my room for students who need a snack throughout the day or some food to take home.

The snack packs and granola bars go to my students that are hungry throughout the day. I also send food home on weekends for those in need.

Many of our students are picked on for their lack of different clothing items throughout the week. They are often unable to wash their clothes so the stains stay for a while. These clothing items will help these students fit in and have more options for clothing to wear.
