My Students

My seventh and eighth grade students come to school carrying piles of stress and the impact of tragedies on their shoulders. They face more troubles in their short lives than I would hope to face in a lifetime. Yet, despite their hardships, they continue to amaze me.

My students attend school in a building that is over 100 years old with a lack of resources; yet, they harness the potential to change the world.

They just need access to resources to reach and realize their full potential. Now, that is where amazing people like you come in.

My Project

Many of my students come from unstable home situations. The students live in shelters, live with other family members and friends, or face homelessness.

Much of the time, school represents the only sense of stability in their life.

Sadly, due to the home issues, they oftentimes do not have access to basic needs. In my room, I always have a share table by the front door. On the table is a variety of hygiene and self-care products for students. The students are able to take what they need without judgment. I hope to be able to keep that table alive throughout the year!
