My Students

My first grade students are amazing, energetic, fun, and lovely children who have a drive to learn. They are like sponges absorbing all the information they can receive from me or anyone who presents to them. Most of my children are Spanish speaking with English as a second language. Many of the parents are only Spanish speaking.

The students come to school daily ready to learn with their friends.

They are excited to be surrounded in a safe, comfortable cozy learning environment. I see them walk into our classroom full of life, ready to learn and excited for what is in store for them that day. I feel honored to have the responsibility to teach these amazing first graders and prepare them for the next grade.

My Project

My students need to be in school everyday learning with their friends. Having essential hygiene items for my students at school, and to take home will create a better learning environment. Toothbrushes, paste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, sanitizer, deodorant, cleaning wipes and distinctive spray creates happy healthy children to learn.

Happy, clean learning students enjoy the school day with friends and teachers.

Students will have the essential healthy items to use daily in the classroom. I will also provide a bag of items for students to take home and use with their family. Many students see the mobile dentist when they visit our school twice a year. The toothbrushes and paste will allow them to continue to keep their teeth clean and healthy. Soaps, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner will prevent body order in the classroom. Lotions, hand soap, wipes, tissue and spray will help the students during the cold winter months. Several students come to class ill and with dry skin. Soaps and lotion will provide the daily cleanliness to help with daily happy learning
