My Students

Our school is in an economically challenged area of the city. My students are an amazing group of students who face a number of daily challenges. They come to school each day ready to learn and excited to try new things and take risks.

Many of them face dangerous situations in the neighborhood and relish in the peaceful and fun parts of our school day.

Despite the challenges, they work hard to be their best. This project will help support them in those efforts.

My Project

These materials will help to start the year off on a positive note! The cleaning supplies will last throughout the year and provide the students with a clean and organized environment. The wobble seats will help the students that need support sitting still to start the year off with a plan.

All of the office supplies, such as pencils, tissues, and pencil sharpener, will support the students with their basic needs to start the year off being prepared and excited to learn.

The label maker tape will support the organization and planning in the classroom for desks and supplies. The more organized and prepared the more we are able to focus on instruction.
