My Students

My students live in a disadvantaged area of our city, where 97% of my students get free or reduced-price lunch. Several of my students live in a homeless shelter. Many come from migrant families where they wake up before dawn to get ready for school because their families work in the fields. Many students rely on the breakfast, lunch, and weekly snacks provided by the school as their main source of solid nutrition. Even with all of their struggles, they are in very high spirits. They give you everything they have and don't ask for much, only love and attention. Their smiles every morning light up my heart and the hearts of those around them. The energy they express and their enthusiasm for learning are amazing. I could not have asked for a better group of students. They are the absolute best kids around. It is my mission to be their greatest supporter.

My Project

With the scented pencils, scented stickers, erasers, toys, and prizes, I will be able to reward my students. I can use the prizes to motivate my students in any activity we do. This positive reinforcement will keep my students wanting to do their best and get a reward from the treasure chest. Students will love and take pride in their work knowing that they will get a little incentive of their choice once they have accomplished the objective given. They will be given a fun item of their liking in return for their hard work and dedication in class. My students deserve to be rewarded for their efforts.

The prizes will help build character because of the responsibility involved in doing well.

It will motivate my students to always try their best. It will allow me to have a system of positive reinforcement with the prizes that the students will not only earn but deserve.
