Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

I work with a diverse group of high school students. Each of them comes with their own unique learning needs. However, together we are working towards one goal: to become lifelong learners, thinkers, and readers.

I am a reading teacher at a Title I school in Connecticut where 100% of my students are reading three or more levels below their grade level.

While these students face many challenges in their life and many of them have experienced trauma, they work hard each day to become better versions of themselves. Many of my students have the goal to be college and career ready but can become easily discouraged. They realize that they need to be literate individuals in order to achieve this, but this can be overwhelming for them at times. We are striving to work together to foster a positive learning environment that builds positive relationships, encourages improved student attendance and a higher level of engagement.

My Project

My reading students are chronically absent and can be disengaged. This happens more frequently when their basic needs are not being met.

For my female students, it can be a real struggle and anxious time when they are worrying about having the adequate feminine products to get through the month!

While my school does have a nurse, supplies can run low. Students don't always have a good rapport with adults in the building, which can lead them to feel embarrassed when they are in need of asking for feminine products. Thankfully, my students and I have formed positive relationships where they can voice concerns they are having. Unfortunately, I am not always able to supply them with the necessary items they are asking for.

In addition to this stress, many of the students do not have access to hand soap in the bathrooms. They often complain that they need to better stock up on these necessities so that they can stay healthy! I would like to be able to offer my students soap to wash their hands throughout the day.

Help me give my students the feminine products necessary to help them stress less about this time of the month and focus more on their academic needs!
