My Students

My Marvels strive to better themselves, their school, and their community. The students in my class are creative, inquisitive, and fun-loving.

Despite all of the difficulties that face my Marvels, they come to school each day ready to learn.

Our school is a wonderful oasis in a working middle/working poor community. My school is an optional school, however my 2 classes are made up of "in community" students. These are students that live in the neighborhood that surrounds our school.

Our classroom's name is "Mrs. M's Marvels." I teach my students that there is a superhero in each of them. I want them to know that they can achieve "super" things when they put their minds to it. We work everyday to establish a kinship- somewhat like the Avengers. We each have different strengths and weaknesses but when we come together we can achieve great things.

I try to make our class a safe environment at all times. Our school is in Memphis, TN and allergy and sinus issues abound. We are currently critically low on tissues and wipes. These items are necessary to provide a healthy environment for my Marvels.

My Project

Memphis is known for many things. One of those things is allergies. With the weather changing constantly, this allergy season has hit my Marvels hard. Our supply of tissues and wipes are at critical levels. We are averaging a box of tissues every 2 days.

We are not allowed to have hand sanitizer out for the students or to use disinfecting wipes, so baby wipes are crucial in providing a way to help the students a way to wipe their hands and clean their desks to prevent germs from spreading.

Preventing the spread of germs is important in promoting student attendance. If a student is sick, they are more likely to stay at home. Tissues and wipes may seem like something strange to write a project for but for my Marvels it is a necessity.
