My Students

My students are incredible. Most of the students at my school come from challenging socioeconomic backgrounds, receiving free/reduced-price meals, food bags for the weekends from the school counselor, and gently used clothes from our librarian. Many also come from single parent homes, or their grandparents, aunts, or uncles are raising them. Some live in homes with other families and have very little space to themselves, and very few belongings they can say are theirs.

Despite all of the adversity my students face, they still come to school ready to learn and with hope for their futures.

They are still dreamers, and they aspire to do great things! I am beyond proud of how they take on challenges in their daily lives and work to better themselves each day.

My Project

These materials will make a huge difference in keeping my classroom organized and functional for all students! Right now I have a classroom library with book bins that have broken or that are not very sturdy. These bins are not likely to last another year!

My students need a functional space to store their notebooks and papers that won't take up a lot of space and will be manageable to keep up on.

Seat sacks are a way for students to have easy access to their materials without the constant need to dig through a desk to find a missing paper or pencil.

As I continue to try and get my classroom as organized and functional as possible, these two sets of items will make a huge difference!
