My Students

Our school is in the southern-most parish of Louisiana, Plaquemines Parish, which is nestled between New Orleans and the mouth of the Mississippi River. My lively classroom is filled with amazing middle school English/Language Arts 8th grade students who are smart, loving, caring, and hard-working individuals.

Our middle school also has a very rapidly growing ELL (English Language Learner) population as well as a large population of students with special needs, both of which are embraced and taught in my classroom!

My Project

My phenomenal students are in need of essential resources that will help keep our learning space clean and healthy! Not only will my scholars be able to independently disinfect their desks, tables, chairs, and technology, but they will also have essential access to tissue, hand sanitizer, and eco-friendly cleaning products, so their desks can be continually cleaned throughout the day.

Furthermore, learning how to self-groom and keep our space clean are incredibly important skills to learn as an introduction to young adulthood and college preparatory living.

By teaching our students the value of personal hygiene and a clean working environment, we can model the significance of healthy lifelong cleaning habits and taking pride in your space.
