My Students

I teach science to a diverse group of sixth graders. Each one has a unique story. Over half of my students receive free or reduced lunch. Even though many do not have much when it comes to materials, they all have huge hearts. They are full of curiosity and very eager to learn. Science can be both exciting and challenging for them. They are truly an amazing group. My ultimate goal is to provide them with the tools they need to have a successful future.

My Project

Being a teacher not only requires us to teach material, we also are responsible for making sure the basic needs of our students are being met. It is financially impossible, as a teacher, to meet every need a student has. My students are in need of a healthy snack to keep their minds going throughout the day. If a students basic needs are not being met they cannot focus on their learning. One of these needs is hunger. Unfortunately, some of my students do not have much food available to them. These snacks will help my students focus and be successful during the school day.
