My Students

I work in a west side school in a large city in Illinois that has 98% free lunch for students. My students are very high energy and spirited and super-excited to come to school. Because of limited monies and resources in the neighborhood, we have to be very creative with the resources and funds we do receive every year to extend their learning.

My students are up for any challenges but they need some support to help them be all that they can be as productive citizens, ever-growing learners, and competent business people.

The majority of this year's students have not been in any day care or school setting before so we want to make sure we prepare them to the best of our ability.

My Project

Students deserve to have a safe, clean environment to learn in and we do our best to provide that. Keeping a clean environment for 20 students is a daily ongoing task and requires alot of supplies. We want students to learn how to be self-sufficient and be able to take care of themselves. So we show them how to blow their nose efficiently and wash hands immediately to avoid further spreading germs. We show them how to help keep the tables clean before and after we eat by letting them use baby wipes while the adults use Clorox wipes to wipe surfaces. Students would get mini lessons on how to help clean up at home as mini helpers once we have supplies to practice.
