My Students

Many of my students are ELL learners are from low socioeconomic backgrounds. The students attending the school where I teach are special because they are unique individuals who are working hard to do their best in school while trying to please their teacher, parent(s), or guardians. The children are also trying to figure out who they are, where they belong, and what kind of person they hope to become. My job as their teacher is to help close the social, emotional, and academic gap among our students. I teach at a Title I school and the majority of our students receive free or reduced-price lunches.

My Project

We all want to feel good about ourselves by having good personal hygiene. However, not all students have equal access to items such as deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes or lotion. These are things that many of us take for granted. However, think about the kid that doesn't have access to deodorant and has to sit in class next to his or her peers. There are many different reasons why my students face problems such as these: no running water at home, no money for "luxuries" like these, or no one at home has taken the time to teach them how to have personal hygiene.
