My Students

My students come from a very low economic area. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Despite their situation, they are a high spirited and engaging group of young boys and girls. Their enthusiasm to learn is heartwarming.

My students face many challenges in their lives and continue to surprise me with their strength and kindness.

My goal this year is to inspire our children to do their best regardless of the circumstances they find themselves in. I want to show them that they are surrounded by loving and caring teachers to help guide them throughout their journey within our school.

My Project

I teach a wonderful group of first grade students who love to learn. During the day we expect more and more out of our students and in order for them to succeed we need to fuel their minds and bodies. I would am requesting a variety of snack to help offer my students a healthy snack each and every day.

My students eat an early lunch and by midafternoon are asking for a snack to help make it through the afternoon.

I allow my students to bring in a snack from home but many of them often forget or do not have anything from home to bring in. I have tried to supplement the need as much as I can on my own, but it has outweighed my resources. I do not have the heart to tell any of these sweet children that there is not enough snacks for them, please help me fuel their minds and bodies for the afternoon.
