My Students

About 80% of my students are English language learners. Our school is also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in Queens. Students speak a multitude of languages including English, Spanish, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Mandarin, Cantonese, Tibetan, and Arabic and 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and free lunch.

Our school community of East Elmhurst/Corona is the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York City.

Our students were hit hard during the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to reacclimate my students back into the classroom, support their social emotional learning, and support their academic learning, it is imperative that I have the ability to facilitate whole group discussion and instruction every day with independent and small group work sessions.

These families are already faced with many social and economic challenges. Their lives are already complicated and faced with many challenges. So many families were devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic and suffered some kind of loss. Our students and families are in need of comfort and familiarity in their classroom in order to continue to express themselves, discuss and share their ideas, purposefully create, explore, question, make self connections and connections to their peers.

My Project

Please help my students to continue to remain healthy this school year. Our Art Studio is running low on hand soap and disinfecting products as we head into the start of the winter season.

As we continue to face challenges with Covid-19 and now the rising surge with the Omicron variant, it is extremely important to continue with as many sanitizing protocols as possible!

I am currently meeting with 23 classes over 25 periods per week, and I am continuing to wash and disinfect in between each and every class. I service about 400 students per week in the Art room. My students use hand sanitizer upon entering the art room, and they wash their hands every session after they are done utilizing the art materials. We also wipe down any materials and work spaces we have used in a period.

Your donation would mean so much to our students in keeping them safe and healthy in order to continue on with their in-person learning. Healthy habits will ultimately keep our schools open and thriving! Thank you for your continued support!
