My Students

"They said he wouldn’t, but he did. They said he couldn’t, but he can. They said he won’t, but he will."

Our school is ranked as a high poverty school with 99% of our students qualifying for free or reduced price lunch.

I teach what is called a Self Contained Cross Categorical Academic class of typically about 15 students, Kindergarten to 3rd grade. The disabilities in my classroom range in severity. As you can imagine, trying to teach multiple grade levels at once can be challenging but somehow with our organized chaos, my educational aide and I make it happen. Each and every one of my students is making progress to meet their annual goals. Teaching at my school has been a blessing because I know that, even on the hardest days, I have little ones who come to school and love the consistency and love what they get at school. Not only do I teach my students academics, but I try to push them to do their absolute best and show them that even though they may have a disability, they can do anything if they set their mind to it.

My Project

My project is simple, I am asking for disinfectant wipes so that I can keep our classroom clean. My students are still figuring out the world and things like manners and hygiene so I am always trying to teach them about germs and how they spread. With so many little learners in one place sharing supplies, the classroom can be a breeding ground for the germs that cause colds and flu. The disinfecting wipes will be used every day to clean desks, headphones, keyboards, our water fountain handle, door handles and much more.

We need disinfecting wipes so that we can keep our classroom as clean as possible.

By having a clean classroom my students will be healthy, we will have less absences and will be at school and ready to learn.
