My Students

I am a Special Education Teacher in a Chicago Public School. I have the privilege to work with students living in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, a historically Puerto Rican community.

My students come from diverse backgrounds of language and culture but are all facing the challenge that is middle school.

They are some of the most creative, funny and resilient kids I've ever met. They exceed expectations routinely, and I would love for you to help me make life a bit more fun!

My Project

Many of my students come to school with hungry bellies. We all know that when we are hungry it is hard for us to focus on anything, let alone school work. When your stomach is growling, your blood sugar is low, your body screams out to feed it, above all else.

This project aims to give healthy snacks to my students so they are able to be the best students they can be in 7th and 8th grade.

By funding this project you are giving energy and sustenance my incredible, funny and persistent students. They deserve the best; let's give it to them!
