My Students

Our students live in a small rural school district. Many students have attended school with one another since kindergarten. It is so special to hear all of the many connections that exist between friends and families in this tight-knit community.

There is something intangible and special about the culture of our school.

Classrooms are decorated with care. The hallways are filled with smiles that you can still see behind masks and friendly conversations between students and staff members. Staff genuinely like each other and their students, and participate as coaches or advisors of at least one extracurricular activity. Families in the community are an important part of decision-making. It is a great place to be a student and a teacher.

My Project

It's hard to challenge yourself to be the best version of yourself when you are hungry. I started the school year with the goal that I would help my students feel prepared to learn by having snacks available in my classroom.

My classroom has now become the place that students show up when they need a snack.

Sometimes they are students that I teach this year, sometimes they are students that I taught five years ago, and sometimes they are students I don't know. Sometimes they come alone and ask for a snack, sometimes they bring a friend, sometimes they wander in to chat and I see them eyeing the snack bowl and I just offer.

I know that by being so willing to share snacks with all students destigmatizes it for students that show up because they are truly hungry. And so, each week, as I buy groceries for my family, I stock up on a new supply of snacks for my classroom. I would genuinely appreciate any support in helping to restock the snack supply in my classroom!
