My Students

All my students are intelligent and destined for bright futures! My students are moving with a purpose, eager to learn, and know that all students count and all moments matter. They are engaged in all types of learning through science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

These kids come in every morning excited and ready to learn.

There's no debating who's the best group of students around! Help me help them! For some of these students, school is the only place they're able to truly enjoy themselves.

My Project

My students are in 7th and 8th grade. My students come from many different backgrounds. They attend school at a Title I school and are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many students come to school each day ready to learn and face whatever challenges may come their way.

During the day at school, the students have their work to focus on.They should not be thinking about being hungry, thirsty, in pain or experiencing hygiene issues.

Having these snack items available to them keeps them at school and their parents or guardians at work.

Healthy and happy students stay focused in class more easily. They know that at school we can help meet some of their comfort needs.
