My Students

My special education students are a unique blend of young people who are creative and brilliant but struggle with emotional and behavioral challenges. I want my young scholars to work hard every day and try their best, and I want to provide them with resources to make it easier for them to accomplish that.

I know my students carry the potential to succeed in the face of challenges in and out of school.

My vibrant, inquisitive, high-energy students come from diverse backgrounds and varied learning abilities. Our school is in a large urban school district with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch.

My Project

Having healthy snack options such as granola bars, fruit snacks, fruit drinks and crackers for students will help energize my students to get through long school days. My students often come to school or class hungry, so being able to provide healthy, easy, handheld breakfast options available to them will improve their behavior and help fuel their minds for learning.

My students also need positive behavior reinforcements.

They work daily to earn "dollars" where they can purchase items from our in-class store on Fridays. I’d love to have an assortment of healthy options for them to reach their behavioral and academic goals.
