My Students

Many of the students in my teaching community come to school with a smile and an eager learning attitude, they have challenges that they have to overcome before coming to school.

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, in Atlanta, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.

These young scholars want to learn and make good choices. Sometimes peer pressure may sneak in and cause them not to make the best choices.

My Project

My students will use these items to help with their holiday break. I am asking for eight Christmas trees to give to eight families at my elementary school. Last year I was talking to a student about the holiday break and I asked her if she put up her Christmas tree. She said her mother told her that if she was good at school, she would get a tree. The problem with that statement was that the girl is extremely well behaved and has an eager spirit to learn. After the holiday break I asked her about her tree. She said they never got one. That hurt me to my core. I know its not all about the tree but it makes an impact in the lives of students less fortunate than others.
