My Students

I work in a very poor school district that is being run by the emergency management team. My students don't get to experience a lot of what other students get to in our state. Some of my students are working on an FCCLA project where they are planning a free Thanksgiving meal they will be serving to the community. They are good hearted kids and can truly make a difference if given a chance.

My students are hard working and are capable of restoring their community to its formal glory.

They truly can make a difference.

My Project

I choose a lot of resources based on nutrition for my class. It is very important that at a young age healthy nutrition is made a priority. Some students don't have access to know what healthy food options are. Being able to see and better understand the differences in things like, for example, fats is crucial for a long healthy life. Not only will the posts help but getting hands on with the game will be able to bring it all together.

Knowing what to look for and what healthy alternatives are the first step in making healthy conscience choices in heating habits.
