My Students

I love what I do and enjoy every minute.

My students are at a disadvantage, but I am determined to turn the odds against them.

These children are born into unfavorable circumstances and have to work twice as hard just to graduate high school, let alone college, but we work very hard to give them a strong solid foundation. I strive to give them the same education that they would receive in a wealthier neighborhood, and I believe that they do.

The students grow so much in a year that it is unbelievable, they leave pre-k with kindergarten skills; they can recognize sight words, add, subtract, count by 2s, 5s and 10s and so much more!

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance from both my students and myself.

My Project

The students I serve come from low socioeconomic families and would greatly benefit from these cleaning supplies. Some families are in such need that their house is a motel across the street from the school, making them homeless. Although their parents do the best they can our students sometimes come in with poor personal hygiene.

Their faces may be dirty, they may have body odor or their shoes badly stained.

Children, especially four-year-olds, are very honest, and sometimes without wanting can humiliate. My students will sometimes point out how "dirty" a students face or shoes are. The wipes would help these students clean up and feel more confident throughout the day.

Because wipes and Swiffer do not use bleach they can be used by the students to complete our classroom jobs. Students love wiping the tables and sweeping. These supplies will help them fulfill their jobs, teaching them responsibilities.

These cleaning supplies will be a great resource for our classroom and greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
