My Students

We are a public charter school in an inner-city neighborhood with very limited funding. One hundred percent of our students qualify for free and reduced price lunch, and many have faced more hardships at age six than some people will face in a lifetime. Yet, despite all of the challenges my students face, they come to school each day with big smiles on their faces. They are motivated and excited to learn.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom we are on the move.

Making school fun while learning is all I really want for my students. By making school a place they want to go I am hopeful to inspire our learners to continue to love school and move forward with a positive attitude

My Project

My scholars need snacks like Animal Crackers, Cheez-It's, and Granola Bars in the classroom to keep them energized during our long day of instruction. Due to our schedule our scholars eat lunch very early and have a long day ahead of them after lunch. It's important to give them a snack break, it's a time for the scholar to refuel and talk with peers. I encourage my scholars to bring healthy snacks from home as well. In case they don't bring anything because they just forgot or didn't have anything at home I want to make sure I always have something for them in class. Food keeps us engaged, energized, and ready to tackle education.
