I have been given the opportunity to teach the best group of little people imaginable. They are kind, generous, and appreciate the small things in life. They arrive each day with a smile, ready to show the world the greatness inside of them.
These little people are absolutely amazing.
They face many challenges and hardships that would defeat any average person. One hundred percent of my students receive free lunch, English is a second language for the majority of my class, and many are facing extraordinary challenges at home. Some even experience periods of homelessness. My students are not average, however. They are extraordinary!
Despite the many challenges they face, they come to school ready and excited to learn! They come with open minds and open hearts and are the most remarkable and kindhearted people I have had the pleasure to know. This is shown day after day, as they request extra time to work in place of recess, show excitement over STEM and other hands-on activities, persevere to complete accurate work no matter how long it takes, and extend a helping hand to classmates when they need it.
My students are amazing, they come to school every day ready to grow and learn. Unfortunately, there are some who do not have the nutrition they need to get the day started. Several do not have access to healthy meals and snacks and that can impede learning.
A variety of healthy snacks will help all of my students get the proper nourishment so that they learn and grow.
I am asking for a variety of healthy snacks including a big healthy snack box, veggie straws, and fruit snacks. This will help my kids fill their bellies when they are hungry and I can even send snacks home to those who don't have a lot of food at their house. This could be a game changer for some of my kids!
