My Students

All of my wonderful students live in a large city in Michigan. Our class is made up of various ethnic and family structures, and all come from low economic backgrounds. Many of my students speak little or no English. This does not limit them, they get up and move and try all activities.

Our school is the pillar of the community.

Here, there is something for everyone. From technology club to garden club the teachers here ensure that when students leave for high school they have a well-rounded education.

My Project

Keeping our room clean. My students need these cleaning products because we are in a very old building that keep an odor and the floors are terrible. We have chipped and cracked tiles. I'm trying to keep the pests out of my class room because we are in such and old building. I need products to help the room smell clean and fresh. The students eat in our class room three times a day. They are always dropping food because they are just pre-school students. They spill milk and juice all the time so the room keeps an odor so please help me!
