My Students

My students are mostly minority students and most of them come from a low-income family background. They are very active and enjoy coming to school and learning science.

They are always ready to learn new skills and explore new opportunities but the unavailability of resources makes it hard for them to understand some of the abstract concepts that I teach; therefore, the need to explain the concepts in ways that make them real, captivating and interesting becomes imperative.

My students enjoy completing class projects that involve hands-on experiments, programming, art and research, which helps them express their understanding of chemistry concepts in their own way by creating new meanings of their discoveries.

My Project

My project is about helping my students who are less privileged but very smart and hard working to get some personal items that would help them stay clean in school and at home. I need help in providing necessary personal items like jeans. socks and shoes to help improve my students' self-confidence. Sometimes my students have to attend events outside of school and they are asked to dress professional but they don't have clothes to wear. As a result, they don't go to such events. Providing them with personal clothes that would help them have confidence in themselves would be a blessing.

My students need some jeans, socks, shoes and healthy food that would help motivate them and keep them focused.

I need your help to provide my students with personal needs like jeans, socks, ties shoes and healthy food items like nuts and crackers that would help motivate them and also improve their academic performance.
