My Students

My students are excited and eager to come to school every day. They are creative, funny, loving, and deserve meaningful learning experiences. My students enjoy working hard each day, they take pride in their work, and they are excited to say "I got it!" It makes my heart smile to think of the growth students show day to day and from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.

I teach at a Title I school in Texas where all of the students receive free lunch.

The students have limited access to educational resources at home, which is why they enjoy school and work so hard. My goal is to create a classroom where students have as many learning experiences as possible. My students believe every day is a day to learn something new!

My Project

Imagine coming to school late, you've missed breakfast and there are 2 more hours until lunchtime. Or you've had school lunch at 11 a.m. but it is now 2:30 and you're hungry again. The next time you will eat is breakfast at school....tomorrow! This is a sad reality many of my students face. I would like to provide students with a morning (for those that arrive late) and afternoon snack. Granola bars, goldfish, and Rice Krispy treats have long been favorites of my students. Juice boxes are great refreshers after enjoying a nice outside recess.

When students are not distracted by hunger they are more ready to be engaged in learning.

It is impossible for students to focus on learning when their stomach is rumbling. The kids do not control the fact that their parents can't afford to send snacks. Being happy and healthy includes eating healthy but also having a clean environment. They Lysol wipes, Kleenex, and hand sanitizes will help us to keep germs away. The fall and winter season will be here before we know it. The broom and dustpan set gives students the opportunity to participate in keeping their classroom environment clean.
