My Students

My first grade students come to school ready to learn each day! They are enthusiastic, motivated, and excited about participating in classroom activities. They LOVE to read and write, as well as take part in hands-on math activites. Students enjoy using manipulatives and working with one another to learn as much as possible.

As a teacher in a low income/high poverty school, my diverse group of first grade students face many challenges at school and at home.

All of the students at my school receive free and reduced lunch. Providing my students with a safe and positive learning environment is essential to their success.

My Project

I teach at a Title I school where every child receives a free breakfast and lunch. Students often come to school hungry and need a small healthy snack to help keep them focused throughout the day. Providing my students with nutri-grain bars, granola bars, and other snacks will help my students tremendously as they learn.

My first grade students will not only be more focused by being able to enjoy a healthy snack but will work harder as they complete tasks.

No child should have to worry about being hungry and these special snacks will motivate my students to do their best as they learn.
