My Students

The majority of my third-grade students come from low-income single parent homes. Unfortunately, many of the parents are uneducated and not able to help their children develop reading skills. On the first day of school, more than 90% of the students that entered my classroom were not reading at a third-grade level. These students are hard working and goal oriented, they just need reading materials that will help them to develop the reading skills they need in order to achieve their academic goals.

My students are part of a T.E.A.M.

because we believe that Together Everyone Achieves Mastery. At the end of the year, my third graders must pass an online state test in order to go to fourth grade. My students do not come to school with a love a literacy. I know that by incorporating different genres into our daily literacy lessons my students will reach their goals, and become third-grade readers.

My Project

I would like to create hygiene bags for families that are homeless who have children attending the school where I work. I would like to pass these out before our long holiday breaks.

When my students have their own toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, and deodorant it helps them to start their day fresh and clean.

It allows each child to not have to worry about bullying, because they smell bad or their teeth are rotten because they can't brush their teeth. These donations will make a significant difference in their young lives.

Personal hygiene should be an expectation for every child but it's not a priority if you're hungry and without the means to have a personal toothbrush and toothpaste.

Please help provide cleaning products, lotion, and soap for my students.
