My Students

As a middle school teacher, I'm in the middle of a teenager's identity crisis. They need someone to lead them and help them find meaning in this world. I am a teacher, a role model, a mentor, a learner, a support system, a helping hand, a lending ear, and an empathetic human being who tries my best every day to help my students become resilient in this challenging world full of hate, shame, and challenges. My goal as a teacher is to help mold my students into productive citizens who make an impact on society, whether that is a small dent or a large hole. Every child has the power to make an impact, but it is who steps into their lives to give a little push that makes their power even more powerful. They are my pineapples who stand tall, wear a crown, and stay sweet on the inside.

My Project

My request for funding of file folders for each one of my middle school students is to help them get organized. In each school we are following a Health and Safety plan that keeps our students safe. Right now, my students are only allowed a 5 subject notebook. This has prevented my students from finding a way to file their papers for their 4 classes.

I gave my students a self reflection survey and they requested folders to help them get more organized.

I'm trying to give them a chance to fulfill this and use a tool they can use throughout their years in school.
