My Students

My students are bright and eager to learn about the world around them. They come from a very diverse economical area. While some of my students are being raised in homes with 2 parents, plenty of food and clothing others are in single parent homes that scrape by with school breakfast and lunches. These students wear clothing that has been handed down several times due to large families. Some of my students wear boots and clothes that are one size too big or one size too small. Even with all my students deal with, they are happy to come to school and learn in an equal environment.

My students are hard working youth that are eager to learn all they can.

My Project

Having the equipment to grow food in the classroom will help my students learn how much we can contribute to growing nutritious, delicious food at home for our families! Learning to compost will help them use the materials and resources around us to fertilize the soil that will grow nutritious food!

In today's world knowing how to produce food from our homes will empower students to make a difference in our world.

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity! Having skills to produce food will last a life time for all my students!
