My Students

My fourth graders are awesome! They are 'city kids' who love school, art, dancing, playing sports and trying new things. These children at our school really are so special. I could never see myself teaching anywhere else.

For many of our students, school is the brightest part of their day.

It's the place where they eat breakfast, lunch and some even have dinner. It's a place where they are safe and loved. For some of them, school is the one place they are able to just be a kid. Many of them help raise their younger siblings so being at school is an escape for them.

Many of our children have heartbreaking stories, some of them have lived through things I'm not sure some adults could get through. So when they are with us at school we try our hardest to make them feel safe, loved and respected. These children are not just students in our classrooms, they are part of our lives. Our job is difficult but it's what I was put on Earth to do!

My Project

I am currently planning our school's science fair. We often struggle to have family involvement. So I am working to make this an awesome family event!

I've asked for decorations for our gym and cafeteria for the fair.

I've also requested materials for a photo booth for the families! These extra touches are going to transform our gym and cafeteria into a science lab for the night!

I am unable to purchase these materials, as I've already purchased trophies and ribbons. There isn't money in our school budget for extras, like these. However, I know that these decorations and props would really get the families excited about the science fair!

I know that if the students and their families enjoy this fair, we will see more of them at our other family events!
