My Students

Our school is one campus with grades Pre-K through seniors, all on one campus. Most grades have fewer than 30 students. We live in a very rural area.

My classes consist of seventh through twelfth grades in English, debate, business, and technology classes, and my students are primarily from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

These students are often in eight classes a day while still active in extracurricular activities and while also helping their families through second jobs, chores, or babysitting younger siblings while the parents work multiple jobs.

My Project

As we are wrapping up this unique school year with projects and competitions to keep students engaged, basic supplies that we use weekly are starting to be depleted. I have discovered that students become more interested and focused with colored paper and colorful pens and markers instead of plain notebook paper and pencils. Additionally, labeling everything keeps supplies separated and organized. This set of supplies will help us end the year strong and safe and begin next year with most of the basics we would need without students, families, or myself needing to purchase these classroom supplies.
