My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. Teaching in a lower income area, some of my students have been to preschool while others have had no educational exposure at all. Each student comes to school excited and ready to learn.

My goal is to provide my students with the best possible educational experiences.

My students enjoy hands-on learning experiences and I strive to provide them with as many opportunities to explore learning and their environment on a daily basis.

My Project

My students have a long period of time between when they come to school and lunchtime. This can be very difficult to stay focused if they are hungry.

I have some students that come to school with empty bellies and are hungry when they arrive at school.

We eat snacks every morning to help keep my students focused. I ask for donations from parents but in the area that I teach it is difficult for many parents to send in anything. I often provide snack on my own. This project will help my students to receive healthy snacks that will keep them focused throughout the day!
