My Students

About 115 students spend a portion of their day in my classroom. Each one, in a multitude of ways, inspires me to be the best mentor I can be.

My students like to learn and to laugh, to think and to create, and to reflect upon themselves as individuals who, in even the smallest way, can change the world.

My students are naturally curious and refreshingly social. They manage to maintain a sense of humor even as they begin to assume greater responsibilities as students, as members of their families, and as citizens of our school and community. They are active learners who enjoy thinking, collaborating, analyzing, and connecting to the world around them. They are encouraging and supportive of each other and of me. They have helped to create a sense of community in the classroom - a learning family - and have become invested in not only their own learning, but the learning of others.

They are going places, and I am so very proud of them.

My Project

Current statistics show that 1 in 7 American school children struggle with hunger. In a school where at least fifty percent of my students receive free or reduced lunch, providing snacks in the classroom could make all the difference.

As research shows, hunger may impact students’ academic performance and success.

Providing students with healthy snacks will improve their concentration and help them focus on learning instead of thinking about the food they need. In turn, their engagement in learning activities will help them develop, grow, and prepare for life after high school - be it college or career. Ultimately, simply offering snacks to my students can help set them up for future success so they no longer have to worry about where their next meal will come from.
