My Students

My students are enthusiastic learners. They are always eager to learn new things. They are a part of a Title One school in the DFW area where family setting is instilled in them daily. Building relationships with my students is part of my curriculum. Most of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My students depend on me to make their learning enjoyable and relevant to their lives.

They greet me with smiles on their faces every morning and are always ready for a new learning day.

My Project

My students receive free breakfast and lunch everyday. For some, the meals they receive at school will be the healthiest meal of their day. Some of my students go home to the care of older brothers and sisters because parents have to work evening jobs in order to make ends meet.

A refrigerator in our classroom will help us keep milk, fruit and other perishable items safe and available for my students to have a snack before going home.

Many times during breakfast, we have lots of milk and fruit leftover but we have to return it to the cafeteria because we don't have anywhere to store it safely. This makes my students sad because they know these are items they could have for snack later in the afternoon when their brains and bodies need a boost to end the school day.

I also teach my students about healthy snacking. Many of my students don't eat fruits and vegetables because they are not available at home. By having a refrigerator in our classroom, I can introduce them to various fruits and vegetables so they can see how tasty healthy food can be.
