My Students

My students are active and enthusiastic learners. However, most of them come from low socioeconomic backgrounds and face substantial challenges every day. My students bring these home stressors with them into the classroom and struggle to focus. Due to the high level of poverty, all the students receive free lunch.

My classroom provides more than a place for content learning.

Here my students find stability and community. They learn essential social and emotional skills, independent thinking, and gain the tools to function and thrive within society.

My Project

My students love goldfish, granola bars, fruit leather, and fruit snacks. Being able to provide them with a snack during our long morning or during the day will be a great pick me up for them to continue learning. My school has been given fresh fruits and vegetables grant that provides students exposure to fruits and vegetables that they might never try. This is a great program but this is only provided to students twice a week.

A little snack and chance for students to have choices of what they would like will entice my students into stretching out their attention span just a little more and keeping their stomachs full so they can focus on learning and not their rumbling tummies.
