My Students

My students are energetic, smart, and determined. I teach middle school students in a 100% Title I school in Philadelphia. My middle schoolers are at that age when there are many changes in their life. I want my students to have the brain power, physical nutrition, and good eating habits in order to grow into healthy adults.

Healthy eating is important for growing teenagers.

My students lack good eating habits and often come into school eating chips and drinking a soda. They tell me that is their breakfast. They do not like the school lunches so they skip that meal and wait to eat more chips after school.

I want my students to develop good eating habits and have the nutrition to be healthy young boys and girls. Learning about eating healthy and building good eating habits is important during these formative years.

My Project

My students are growing teenagers. They like to sleep late and often miss the school breakfast. Many dislike the school lunch but attempt to eat some of it because they are hungry. It is difficult to teach seventh and eighth graders when their belly is empty. We know, as adults, they a child's basic needs must be met in order for them to grown in mind and body.

Hungry students can't focus on learning.

I want my students to be the best that they can be and do well in school. My teenagers are often hungry and become extremely irritable and unable to focus on their school work. It seems like a simple fix, but, hunger in America affects more children than we realize.

During the school day, I offer snacks to my children. My students love to eat and rightfully so; they are growing and developing into young ladies and young men. They need to eat and not sit in a classroom feeling hungry and worried about when they will have food. Giving my students a snack makes them smile and eliminates their hunger pains. I find that even the smallest snack can help my students focus on their school work and do better in the classroom. This gets expensive with 3 classrooms of seventh and eighth graders but I do my best to always have snacks available for my students.
