My Students

My students are special because they come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Regardles that my students may come from poverty, may be homeless, have a single parent in the home, or not knowing where there next meal is coming from, they are eager and ready to learn. The majority of my students are on free and reduced lunch and they may not have the financial opportunities to further explore their thoughts and ideas. I want to provide my students with different learning materials to help guide them into becoming lifelong learners regardless of their situation and/or low socioeconomic background.

Each student has the ability to learn and with a variety of engaging materials, I will be able to provide them with special opportunities to help them deepen their love of learning to become, life long learners.

Being able to have access to the smaller things and make a larger investment in their education, will help them feel a sense of achievement and encourage all of them to exceed their own academic goals.

My Project

These materials will make a difference in the lives of my students because if they are not at school they are missing out on valuable instructional time. The hand sanitizer, Kleenex, Clorox wipes will allow students to have a fight against the spread of bacteria of viruses at their desks and tables in the classroom.

I want to ensure that not only is the classroom a positive, inviting environment, also that it is free of germs to promote students to be at their very best to engage their minds when they are at school.

Students will be able to focus if they do have a cold that Kleenex, hand sanitizer, and Clorox wipes will be available to them if they need them. It is a blessing to be able to provide for the students so that they may concentrate on learning and becoming the best version of them they can be.
