My Students

I currently have 30 students in my special education (SPED) classes. My students are SPED students and have a love for technology, reading, math, and science. They are very excited about learning and I want to make the class interactive. Due to time and lack of reliable technology, we are limited.

My students don't have access to technology or additional resources at home.

Many of our students are foster care students that don't have any technology. The students in my classroom are a diverse group of children who come from intricate family backgrounds. I teach at a low-income school, in a classroom full of eager learners who are enthusiastic about coming to school every day!

My Project

I want to help provide my students with snacks that they can eat after they leave reading and math tutoring.

Our school has an extended school day.

We then have tutoring until 4:30 p.m. My students eat lunch at 10:30 a.m. and I am requesting these snacks so that they can have a bite to eat. I want to have these additional snacks so that my students can have something to eat before they go home.

Many of my students only eat their meals in school. The snacks will allow them to focus on learning and not being hungry. I want them to be able to have something to nourish their bodies while they are learning.
