My Students

I am a fourth grade teacher in a large, Pre-K-8 school. Most, if not all, of my students come from lower income families. Many of these children face poverty, violence, and obscenities of life on a daily basis; that are well beyond what most of us could imagine.

Despite all of that, they come to school hungry for knowledge trying to do their best to learn as I try to do my best to give them a good education and an introduction to the American way of life.

With limited resources, there are many things that others consider basic parts of education that I am unable to provide without the assistance of others. Many of my students do not come to school fed, let alone with the correct school supplies needed to succeed. Their parents are not able to supply them with simple school supplies.

My Project

My students need winter appropriate clothing, i.e. sweatshirts, before the notorious Connecticut winter season sets in. Not to mention the FREEZING classroom.

Coming from some of the toughest and lowest socioeconomic neighborhoods, my students do not often have the financial freedom when it comes to purchasing items for the new school year whether they are essential or not.

The air conditioner in our building is not very efficient, therefore our classroom is freezing. We need sweatshirts in order to stay warm and healthy.

A high percentage of our student population reside in foster homes, homeless shelters or numerous family members homes and do not have regular access to purchasing things such as sweatshirts, and with a lack of financial freedom these are the last things you think about. I want to create a resource for my students so they can get a sweatshirt. Together we can improve student lives!
