My Students

I am the Licensed School Nurse at a middle school that is currently comprised of about 400+ students. The majority of our students are African American, and most live at or below the poverty line.

However, despite the disadvantages my students may deal with in their daily lives, students are being empowered to set goals that allow them to think outside the box, to realize their own individual brilliance and to know they will be supported in reaching their goals.

As a school we are working to make our school student-centered. Rather than school being something that we "do" to students, students are encouraged to be active participants in designing a respectful school environment, a learning environment they help to create. Our end goal results in every student receiving a high-quality, well-rounded education that prepares them for future success.

My Project

I am the Licensed School Nurse at a middle school in Minneapolis. I am in desperate need of a new refrigerator for our school health office.

The importance of the refrigerator for our students includes the storage of their medications that need to be kept refrigerated, snacks for students with diabetes, students with hypoglycemia, students who miss breakfast due to lack of food at home, and ice packs for students with minor injuries.

It is our goal in the school health office to treat minor injuries and illness enabling students to return to class as soon as possible and thus be active participants in their learning.
