My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I ask them, "Who is the best class in the whole world?" and they reply, "We are!" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

I teach at an inner city school where 100 percent of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend from the food pantry that I run in our school for our families. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

These foods will help supplements weekend backpacks that are sent home with the students. Many times the only foods they get are the two meals we give them at school. With 100 backpacks going home weekly, I need this foods to help me fill these backpacks. With your support I can make sure that my students are not hungry. No child should ever have to ask for food, but they do, When 5 and 6 year old children know that their home does not have enough food and then they have to come ask me, well that is just sad. please help me help them.
