My Students

My school is a Title l school in North Charleston, SC. Many students in my class come from low-income families and face impoverished living conditions. Many others come from families who do not speak English.

Despite all of the hardships they have experienced in their young lives, my students come to school with a smile on their face and ready to learn each day!

These students work their hardest to be the best version of themselves that they can be!

My Project

As an adult it can be difficult for me to concentrate on and complete tasks each day without feeling clean and refreshed. But, that is the reality many of my students face on a daily basis. I have witnessed several students walking in to start their day with dirty clothes. This causes the students to not only be in a bad mood, but causes a lack of concentration that they can't overcome on their own. As their teacher, it is my job to make sure my students are taken care of so they can concentrate on learning at school. My students need a variety of hygiene products such as laundry detergent, deodorant, toothbrushes, and toothpaste to assist with their personal health. Thank you in advance for providing my students with a supply of products that can help improve their focus throughout the school day as well as their moods.
