As a new teacher, I hope to give my students an environment where they feel supported and loved. School should be their safe and happy place, a place where they can develop themselves and their futures.
I teach in an extremely diverse public charter school, where 100% of the students are considered economically disadvantaged and more than 25% are English Language Learners.
Our school is located in a historic neighborhood in Washington, DC that is known for its rich history of art and culture.
My students face hardships in and out of school, and I want to alleviate their in-school experience as much as possible. I want to create a positive classroom experience so they can achieve their maximum potential.
We live in a climate that gets extremely cold; full of wind, rain, and snow! Many of my students come to school and either do not have gloves or they forget them at home.
My class needs warm items like gloves, crew neck sweaters, and cardigans to keep them warm inside and outside the building.
Our school also enforces a dress code that does not allow students to wear hoodies or jackets inside the building that do not meet dress code. Many of them do not have sweaters that meet dress code compliance. I want to be able to provide them with items so that they can wear them inside the building.
