The small country school at which I have the privilege of teaching is full of sweet and eager first grade students from many different backgrounds. Walking in each day, they are full of excitement to learn and listen attentively as I read them stories. Their infinite creativity allows them to write their own stories to share in class. Over the years, my classes have published many books to share with others and their families. Although my students do not all have the same opportunities in their home, I strive to help each and every one of them believe that they can reach their highest potential and accomplish more than they ever imagined. Starting out each year, my number one goal for every child is that they are positively impacted and begin the most crucial years of their lives on a successful note.
Students learn better when they have eaten good meals and snacks. Some of my children come to school and do not have any snack at home to bring to eat. Our school is part of a program where all of our children receive free breakfast. The students get a healthy lunch each day, also. When it comes time for snack some of the children do not bring anything. This snack helps to recharge them to finish learning through the end of the day. This refrigerator will help me to be able to store milk, juice, and yogurt for the children to eat for a snack. Throughout the year we are doing STEM projects that require the materials to be kept cool. This will help me to have the materials available in my class. An example is when we raise butterflies, we need to keep the nectar cool to feed them until they are released.
