My Students

My students come into my music classroom once a week full of energy, excitement, and a passion for music. Unfortunately, they face many struggles in their attempt to achieve academically. Most are impoverished, raised by someone other than their parents, and reside in a dangerous community full of crime, gangs, drugs, and violence. Many don't have their most basic physical and emotional needs met. The two free meals and one snack they receive each day may be all they eat that day. Many have parents that are incarcerated or addicted to drugs/alcohol or mentally unable to provide for the needs of their child. However, many of them do succeed! I am so proud of each one when they reach and surpass their academic goals!

My Project

Many of my marvelous mini musicians depend on the free two meals and one snack a day that the government provides to meet their hunger needs. Since I teach after school programs such as Choir, Little Kids Rock/Modern Band, and Music Memory, my students are in need of a healthy evening snack each day. In addition, I am unable to provide goods needed to assist in all of my music students' hygienic needs such as Kleenex, hand sanitizer, and other basic cleaning supplies. Please consider assisting me as I strive to meet my Marvelous Mini Musicians' hunger and hygienic needs so that they can focus on achieving their academic goals. Thank you in advance.
