My Students

I am a fourth-grade teacher in a large Pre-K through eighth school. Most, if not all, of my students, come from lower-income families. Our students are amazing individuals, many of whom have challenging home lives.

Despite these difficulties, many of the children are active and excited about learning.

As they try their best to learn, I try my best to give them a good education and an introduction to the American way of life.

My students come from very low socioeconomic backgrounds and low-income families. All the children at my school receive free lunch and snack daily. Many of them do not have basic school supplies and other necessary items. Despite all of the challenges these students face in their daily lives, each student comes to school ready to learn and succeed.

My Project

Many of my students do not have access to healthy food every day or regular meals. They often rely on food from school to keep them going every day. I want to make sure that my students have healthy snacks available for the day, so that they do not have to worry about food and focus on a new way of learning. These healthy snacks make a huge difference for my students. Sometimes children get grouchy because they are hungry, and I would like to relieve this situation in many families. These snacks will help us support our students.
