I am proud to teach at an inner city school in Houston, Texas. Unfortunately, they have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. Our school was flooded severely, and we have been relocated to a year long temporary location. Most students live within walking distance of the old location, and now have to ride the bus 30 minutes each direction.
I am amazed at the resilience my students have shown in such trying times.
They have not let this setback dampen their spirits. They continue to come to school every day eager to learn as if things are back to normal when it's going to be at least 2 years before our new school is built. I want them to be equipped with everything that they need to be successful at school because they deserve to have something good happen after Hurricane Harvey.
My students have worked extremely hard this school year despite the setbacks due to Hurricane Harvey. Now that more than half of the school year is complete, we are headed to the finish line.
Despite progress after Harvey, we continue to find ourselves in need of classroom materials.
For the spring project, poster boards are needed to display the research papers. Spring weather also means recess time. The jump ropes would be greatly enjoyed while at the same time promoting cardio fitness.
Our school was relocated to a temporary location this year, and we recently were told that we will move to another location for the next school year. That means packing up all materials for transporting to the new location. It would be easier and more efficient to have durable storage containers instead of flimsy cardboard boxes. The two laptops need covers for protection.
