No More Sick Days! Help Keep Urban Kindergartners Healthy!

My students need clean air and a sanitary classroom to cut down on germs and help my students better attend.

My Students

I teach a diverse and incredible class of motivated general education students and English Language Learners. My children come from incredibly loving families; most of these families are low income.

My classroom includes children with learning disabilities, children whose families are experiencing poverty, children with limited English proficiency, and children from a wide range of backgrounds.

Having the opportunity to attend a high quality early education program enables these children to explore new ideas and develop lifelong habits for learning.

My Project

As with any classroom, the health and safety of my students is always a top concern. Working in a dense urban district means my students are exposed to a number of environmental and pollution factors that have a serious effect on their health.

The rates of childhood asthma and allergies have skyrocketed in the last two decades and for many children a classroom with clean air can make the difference between a productive day of learning and a miserable day of breathing issues.

Some of the children in my class this year with the most severe cases of asthma have missed as much as 40 days of school! A high quality air purifier and UV sanitizing light will make a world of difference for these children and help them to better attend.
