After watching the endless news coverage of the victims of Hurricane Katrina, one cannot fathom the scope of this disaster. As a human being, I think of the necessities of survival. As a teacher, I think of the necessities of education. Thousands of children have been displaced from their schools, neighborhoods, and cities across the Gulf. I am requesting help for a classroom supply kit with basic items for learning and play to go to a group of students in need, wherever and whenever that may come about. Back in college, I volunteered for a week at a small school in New Orleans called Bishop Perry. This school exhibited a light of hope among so many schools in impoverished neighborhoods. Though Bishop Perry is most definitely under water right now, I want to give something to students who come from schools like Bishop Perry, who try so hard and will now struggle with day-to-day operations. My students in New York City will be adding to this care package with their letters, kind words, and hopes for the future. We want to provide a small amount of comfort and help to those who need it most. Thank you for your consideration.
