My Students

This year, I will be teaching Middle School Cross Categorical Special Education. Most of my students either have a learning disability or autism. They come from low income or single parent households. In addition, four percent of students in my school are ESOL, and we are projected to increase enrollment by one hundred students this year.

In our school of four hundred and fifty students, they speak a total of seventeen, different languages.

They also come from a variety of different backgrounds. Students come from all over the city to attend our school. Our school is a midwest, urban middle school where one hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Thank you for supporting students with a great need.

My Project

These snacks will help my students stay full, focused and energized to get through their day. Every morning, after related arts, my students come into the classroom complaining about how hungry they are and need a snack. This leads them to be cranky and tired so they can’t be focused and energized to learn. Most of my kids are up before the sun in the morning to catch the bus so they can be at school by seven. Our students come from all over the city. This leaves some kids on the bus for over an hour. We don’t eat lunch until 11:45. That leaves my kids going five or more hours without eating. Home lives are not the best for many, so I want to ensure that all my students are getting fed. Snacks will allow my students to be full and focused ready to read and write each morning.
