I'm So Hungry! Got Any Snacks?

My students need a supply of snacks, such as mixed nuts, trail mix, gum, granola bars and chocolate, to keep them focused throughout the day.

My Students

"I'm so hungry." is a phrase every parent of a teenager hears almost daily. When my students tell me this, I know they can't work their best. They need to stop and have a snack before they can carry on.

Our small school is located in New York.

We are a small school housed within a campus of many small schools. As we service students primarily from the surrounding neighborhood, our students represent a multicuturally diverse and disadvantaged urban population. All of our students are recent immigrants to the United States. Most of my students' families fall below the poverty line. Many are on public assistance and many others are barely surviving. Yet, my students are expected to meet the same educational standards as more affluent students of New York do.

My Project

As recent immigrants, my students face many up-hill struggles. They must acclimate to a new culture, learn a new language and all of the subject matter for each discipline. My task as a teacher is to remove all barriers to student learning and make complex concepts accessible to all. If students are distracted because of an empty stomach, it becomes near-impossible to teach, or for students to retain important information. Having access to snacks such as mixed nuts, trail mix, gum, granola bars, and chocolate at the end of the day will often be the difference between being focused and on task, and distracted by hunger.

With your generosity, I will be able to provide a snack that will keep my students on track and ensure that the learning process is successful.

All of the growling stomachs, as well as myself, thank you most sincerely.
