My Students

Many of my students live in federal housing or low-income apartments near my school. My school has about 700 students and is a school-wide Title I, Provision II school, which means that 82% or more of the students are eligible to receive a free or reduced-price lunch.

Many of my students are second language learners and may be the first students in their families to attend college.

My students participate in a program that focuses on stewardship of the marine environment that is close to the school and their community.

My Project

As part of our marine science curriculum, my students are required to collect data at the beach. We try to make the three mile walk to the beach almost every month. They are given clipboards, pencils, gloves, and buckets to collect, categorize, analyze, and properly dispose of any trash they may find in and on the sand.

Students have either picked up trash with their hands or have used disposable latex gloves, which we find adds to the already large pile of trash.

With garden gloves, my students can conduct their research, with equipment (in this case the gloves) that offers better skin protection than the latex gloves and are environmentally friendly since they can be used many, many times over!
