My Students

My students live in a low income/high poverty community. 100% of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches. They are not exposed to much outside of their small town but are grateful for what they have been able to experience.

The 3rd grade class is made up of 30 curious minds ready to explore anything that opportunity brings.

The students express their eagerness to learn as they ask questions, complete research to find the answers, and excitingly share their findings with one another.

We are a family. I made it a point to explain that we are all on this journey together and, although they giggle to think of each other in this manner, I have noticed that they take pride in taking care of one another. The students guide and encourage each other to be successful. It is an amazing thing to witness. I know my students have the ability to do great things and I would like the opportunity to help them do just that.

My Project

My students will learn the importance of kindness, giving, and compassion. Many of my students come from homes where they experience their own personal trials. It is key for my students to build a foundation of good will toward others in their time of need and loss so they know that they have the power to make a positive impact on someone's life, even at their age and while dealing with their own circumstances.

The Give Back Box will provide duffel bags that my students will decorate and fill for children in our local foster care facility.

Kindness has no age and neither does the ability to make a positive difference in someone's life, especially through a grand transition into foster care.
