My Students

Our students are some of the best around. Their attitude, demeanor, respect, personalities make working at our school the best place to be. We strive as educators to give these students the best chance on all levels. That may mean providing food, clothing, giving extra help with school subjects or other resources.

Our students are motivated to learn, work and excel in their goals.

As teachers we want to be able to make their dreams a reality by communicating with them their personal goals and forming long lasting relationships built on trust and respect. With your help we can acquire the tools to help put students on an equal level to achieve those goals.

My Project

Your support would be greatly appreciated in helping provide hygiene products for our students. You can make it possible for students to get basic hygiene products such as deodorant and maxi pads. Based on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs students need to have the physiological and safety needs met before they can work their way up the pyramid to love/belonging, esteem and self actualization. With the help of these products students can avoid being embarrassed by body odor as well as avoid missing school when it is that time of the month and they do not have the feminine products they need.
