My Students

I teach 150 ninth grade students in high school. My students are energetic, talented, and love to learn. They have great attitudes and also like participating in challenges and competitions whether individual or team oriented.

The families are supportive given their hectic work schedules.

My school is a Title I school with 78% of the students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. The students are a diverse group.

The students' participation in activities are limited due to financial strain. My students face many challenges in their daily lives which affect their school days. From homelessness and not having breakfast or enough sleep at home to not having clean clothes, they still show up ready to give their best.

Throughout the year, my students explore various pieces of literature like The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. They are often asked to complete projects at the end of the readings such as creating guidebooks, brochures, and even a literary analysis for each piece.

My Project

Many students come to school hungry and rely on our educational institution to provide food, comfort, and safety. It can becomes difficult to focus when you are constantly thinking about essential needs which are missing in your daily life.

The Performance Food Pantry strives to keep students' emphasis on their education while providing essential needs.

Students love engaging in competition. The snacks will also be used for group competition rewards while in class. Without your help, many students would miss out on this opportunity. Thank you for listening. Together we can make a little snack go a long way with your help!
