My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching all of the students in the building. I get to know them on a personal level. I also have to be strong because, in this city school district, I hear many heartbreaking stories. They have tough lives with a lot of gang activity, drug use, and family issues. I open up my classroom to many of the community organizations, so our students have somewhere else to go. I also open my classroom door to all of my students at any time, for anything. I try to introduce them to healthier lifestyle choices any way I can.

My Project

When my department became involved with organizing, storing, and distributing the clothes for our students who are homeless, displaced, runaways, and/or unable to afford basic items, we had no idea how many students were effected! Our students need clean underwear, bras, socks, and pants. They do not have the money or the means to get these simple necessities on their own. They all have horrific stories to tell. They are so young and have already had to lose so much. the least we can do is supply these items so they are able to feel better about themselves in clean clothes and know people do care.

We need clean underclothes for our young ladies who do not have the means of getting it themselves.
