My Students

My students consist of 6th, 7th and 8th graders that are in a 12:1 or a 12:1:1 setting.

Each day we strive to teach through a multitude of modalities and love to use visual aids/hands-on learning within our classroom.

My students consist of predominantly Emotionally Disturbed and Learning Disabled, and Intellectual Disabled students, however, we never let their disabilities define them or let those disabilities stand in our way. Within our classroom, we always set the bar high and expect nothing but greatness.

My Project

You wake up late, didn't eat dinner the night before, and now are rushing off to school. You finally arrive at school, but your stomach is growling. How do you manage to focus? You don't! How do we solve this problem? We provide our students with a snack to hold them over.

If we have snacks within the classroom, we could provide our students with a snack to help hold them over until lunch time.

By helping us provide snacks such as Frito Lays variety packs, Goldfish crackers, chewy bars, and water, our students will have an assortment of snacks to choose from, to hopefully fill their empty stomachs.

My students face daily struggles. Academic deficits are part of the struggles they face, but not the only issue. Many of our students need additional nutrition and nurturing. It is hard for many students to concentrate, now add a growling stomach, and it makes focusing, next to impossible.

We try to always have snacks available for students, but many times we purchase snacks from our own funds. The expense is growing more and more each month, and it seems like more and more students are arriving to school with empty stomachs. Funding this project would greatly help with filling many empty stomachs.
