My Students

I teach in a comprehensive suburban high school of about thirteen hundred students. My students never cease to amaze me by showing me what they are truly capable of accomplishing.

They work hard, give often and show respect.

In one of our drives for raising money for the March of Dimes, I witnessed a group of selfless teenagers dig into their pockets and purses to raise over four hundred dollars in one week. One student handed me a twenty dollar bill. I told him I didn't have change yet and he replied, "No, I want the kids to have it." This act lead to the others in my class to give generously. This was a moment when I knew these kids are capable of so much more than we can sometimes offer them.

My Project

Students came to me asking for help with their non-sponsored club: hospice helpers. These wonderful young adults volunteer their time and money so families have the most comfortable lives in a time of need.

Giving back to those who need it is one of the most rewarding experiences we can give our students.

Students came up with the list of supplies they need to support these families who are losing loved ones. They get together and make soups, so the Instapot, soup pots, and silverware will help them with having the supplies to make and serve the families meals.

Making those who are ill gift and care packages is also something my students have asked to do. Small stuffed animals the sick can hold as well as soft socks, lotion, and lip balm will comfort those who are in need of comforting.

My students are dedicated to making the world a better place, and these supplies will allow them to do so without having to pay for much out of their own pockets.
