My Students

I work at a Title I school. Over 95% of the students receive free or reduced lunches. I teach 4th and 5th grade gifted language arts. My students are like most students their age. They are motivated to learn, despite some of the struggles that go on outside of school for them.

My students come from hardworking families.

Some of the families are struggling more than others. Even though these struggles sometimes have an effect on the students academic progress, for the most part, they are strong-willed little individuals. They persevere despite their difficulties.

My Project

This project is an important one to me. It is near and dear to my heart and I WILL sleep better at night if I can get this one funded. Our temperatures dropped in Florida this week. To most people across the U.S. that would mean nothing. For those families that are not prepared for the cooler temperatures, it can equate to suffering.

One of my students told me that they were short on blankets at his house.

He told me that he used his jacket that night to cover himself while he slept. I am sure I have many other families that are not prepared for the cold nights that we have been having. I would love to be able to give my students a blanket for their Winter Break parting gift!
