My Students

Our school is located in Lower East Side, New York. I teach a very inquisitive group of third-grade girls. My students know that the best learning happens when we share and learn from one another.

As black and Hispanic women, most from low-income households, our girls will undoubtedly face obstacles in life.

They are working hard to develop the skills and character traits needed to tackle these obstacles with confidence and grace.

Our classroom is known to be a place where students feel safe, make mistakes, have fun, laugh, take risks, foster friendships, read, create, and love learning!

My Project

Every year our students are required to take the state tests. In third grade, this will be the first year our kids will be taking a test of this length and importance. We have 2 months of practice before taking the test. Once the test begins we have 3 weeks of testing, reading, writing, math and science.

Testing is stressful and having a healthy snack can make a WORLD of a difference in a testing era.

While all of my students are given free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast at school, sometimes it is not enough to get them through the day without getting a little hungry. Students who are hungry are too focused on when they will be eating next to pay attention to the important things going on in the classroom. By allowing my students a snack time, not only will I be helping them stay more focused on their school work, but will also allow for a quick "brain break" in between activities. I am requesting fruit snacks, Cheez-It crackers, rice cakes and more. With your help, my students will have snacks to keep them nourished.
