Mrs. C from Port St Lucie FL is requesting materials related to food, clothing & hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Less HUNGER and THIRST for 2022

Help me give my students food, hydration and a clean environment. The air filter will drastically help my students who suffer from allergies. The rest will provide my students with nourishment, so many are hungry and thirsty.

My Students

I currently work at a low-income high school where students struggle to see their value and worth. Every day our goal is to make this a safe space where they can succeed. I teach Health Science and focus on health-related careers that these students can jump into right out of school. COVID-19 has made a huge impact on these students. Their mental health has decreased, their social skills have been impacted and their views on life have gotten isolated and negative. As instructors, we need all the help we can get to get the students on the right track.

Through an amazing team of admin and staff, we are trying to remind these students how much they have to offer.

We are getting more creative and interactive with our teaching methods to get them excited about the future. With that thought process and view on teaching, we will of course need supplies and materials that foster our ideas of a growth mindset.

My Project

My students come in on the daily, hungry and thirsty. They are given funded meals through the school, but many do not eat. With COVID precautions, our water supply is limited on how they can obtain it. Many do not have the funds for the vending machines and many times the vending machines are not working. They struggle to concentrate when they are focused on eating or drinking. Some kids ask for a package of crackers to take home with them so they have something to eat at home. I try to make sure to have foods and drinks that will benefit them in a healthy manner. Allergies are also a huge issue as well, having the cleaning supplies and air purifier will make a huge impact on those who struggle with allergies.
