My Students

My day is never a typical day. I teach students with autism and autism spectrum disorders. The biggest challenge in my classroom is keeping my students engaged in learning. Our school has over sixteen different languages spoken and seventy-four percent of the students are at risk of educational failure. I work with students who have special needs and their abilities vary from non-verbal to socially isolated. Students in my program do not learn through traditional teaching methods. Their materials need to be engaging and offer my students spatial awareness to stay on task.

My students are eager to learn; I just need materials to help them.

My students face a variety of learning and behavioral challenges every day. They have diverse learning skills and needs. Having hands-on learning materials for my students to use when they are struggling to learn is essential.

My Project

I am requesting healthy snacks that are essential to learning in my classroom. The goldfish crackers, pretzels, animals crackers, and cheese crackers will help keep my students fueled while at school. My students often struggle with basic life essential supplies such as healthy snacks and food. Since Hurricane Harvey hit Fort Bend County, my students struggle with basic needs. My students will use the snacks to power their day of learning. The snacks will allow my students to have energy to learn and grow. I work in a Title I school. Oftentimes, my families do not have food for the children. My students come to school hungry which is very difficult for my students to focus on their work. Hurricane Harvey hit our district and it impacted my students greatly.

The donations to this project will help my students stay full and focused on learning.

Imagine thousands of children going to school hungry. How are they supposed to focus and concentrate on learning when all they can hear is their stomach growling? In the worst cases, children simply go to school so they can eat. Basic needs for my students are often a real struggle. Funding this project will help my students stay focused and keep their bellies full.
