My Students

My students all have big eyes that glisten in the light. They live in an extremely poor neighborhood, and it does not faze them. My students cry when it is time for vacation. They stay behind when the day is over. I often find one or two hiding in the coat closet. They want to be in school. They are starving for more knowledge, more safety, and more consistency. They feel safe in our school. They feel safe with their teachers.

As their teacher, I am a conduit of knowledge, order, and respect.

I have a big responsibility to bring the world to them and hold their attention within our room.

My Project

These materials will help many children in our second grade who may come to school unprepared with basic essentials. Winter is upon us and our area has been affected by a tragic gas situation. Many of our students have been without gas in their homes.

As a result, the students may be lacking a snack to keep their brains firing and bellies warm.

The chap stick is a simple luxury all people embrace in the cold weather. It helps students to focus when their basic needs are met. The hats and gloves will keep the students warm while walking to and from school.
