My Students

I have fallen in love with my students' perseverance and bright spirits! Despite the daily challenges my students face, they come to school with smiles on their faces ready to tackle whatever is thrown at them. My students work very hard and they are super excited to learn.

I teach at a Title I funded school where one hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many students in my school receive food kits for the weekends and are placed in the Angel Tree program each year at Christmas. Despite living in a perpetual cycle of poverty, their spirits remain unbreakable.

It's no secret that children from difficult backgrounds are underdogs from the very beginning. That is why they need a champion, someone who believes in them enough to give them a chance at success. This project will open the door to uncharted territory for my students and allow them to reach a level of success they never knew existed.

My Project

Everyone knows that it's difficult for kids to learn and do their best when they are hungry! Some of our students come to school with no snack and no money to purchase anything. To add insult to injury, these students watch others chow down on a treat during snack time while they have nothing to eat.

This popcorn machine will provide a delicious, healthy snack for students to enjoy and will help keep their minds and bodies full and ready to put their best foot forward throughout the day!

This project includes all we need to get started but is also cost effective enough that we can keep providing this service to our students for years to come! Please consider helping us provide a free, yummy snack for our hungry students!
