My Students

I teach eighth-grade social studies to special education and general education students. I want to make sure my students have access to the basic supplies they need to be successful in school. Students in my school come from many different backgrounds and have a lot to offer. More than half of the students are from low‑income households and for many students, the only safe and happy place they have is coming to school. It is my goal to make the time our students spend in my classrooms the best part of their day.

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

My Project

Donating to this project will help to equip my classroom with healthy and nutritious snacks for our students. I would like to ensure that I have healthy snacks on hand when our students are hungry. Having an ample supply of nutritious foods helps to keep my students healthy and engaged in class. Many students take the public bus to school so sitting down to eat at home, sometimes isn't an option. These students sometimes get in too late to take advantage of the breakfast program. Others work through their lunch periods and miss lunch altogether. Having these nutritious snacks at school will ensure that these students are full and happy.
