My Students

My students are a group of energetic, creative, eager learners. They come from a predominantly low economic background. Over ninety-five percent of the students receive a free or reduced-price lunch. Our school is a safe haven for​ many of the students, as it's the only place many receive consistency along with a daily routine of learning. This group of preschool students are excited about learning and just need a boost to help continue to motivate them. One's economic class should not determine their level of learning or hinder their creativity.

My Project

An old school can have its challenges. At my school, we never know if the temperature will be hot or cold. The school maintenance staff work hard to maintain school, but sometimes the temperature just are not right.

Supplying my class with cooling fans and warming heaters would give us more time to experience hands-on opportunities and focus on our assigned tasks.

On warm days it is difficult for students to be motivated to work and stay on task. Many say "I went to school without air conditioners/fans" but we must remember that due to global warming this heat isn't the same kind that we all experience in our school days.

Space heaters for my classroom would allow my students to be comfortable during the Michigan winters and continue their learning. It is excessively hot in the summer and freezing in the winter. Fans and space heaters can help us survive this!
