My Students

“There's nothing as exciting as a comeback - seeing someone with dreams, watching them fail, and then getting a second chance." - Rachel Griffiths. This statement is very true-especially for my students. Many of the students that I interact with are those who have made mistakes in their lives and are looking for someone to believe in them. I try to ensure that the students that I interact with know that there is someone who is not judging them from their past, but someone who is investing in their future.

My Project

We have just completed a wonderful school year. It is our desire that the next school year will be just as great. In order to help ensure this, I am requesting items that will help my students feel comfortable and prepared for the next school term.

The curtains will be used to cover each of our large windows and hopefully produce a calm and relaxing environment.

The hand sanitizer will be made available to students to help keep their hands clean. The paper clips will be used to keep assignments organized. The pencil sharpener and pencils will be used to ensure that the students have all of the writing utensils needed.
