My Students

My students are a wonderful mixture of high-poverty, free-lunch students to the average middle-class family. More than half, closer to 65%, receive free or reduced-price lunch, and are in need of basic supplies as well as engaging lessons.

They are students who want to do their best, even those who need a little nudge.

I have a diverse group of students from many different backgrounds. It is important for me to build relationships and create connections with each student in my class so they feel welcomed and appreciated. From the quiet one to the outspoken student, I want them all to feel my class is a place for not just learning, but caring as well.

My Project

With these supplies of coffee, hot chocolate and snacks, I hope to create a community environment where teachers and students can gather together in the mornings. We have Keruig machines already at school so having these supplies will encourage students and teachers to come together in the mornings. Feeling comfortable and developing relationships will increase the Social Emotional Learning of students. Teachers have opened their classrooms in this during our new advisory period and encouraging students is so much easier when they are relaxed and having a great morning. The teachers will be happy too with having coffee (and the conversations!).
