My Students

Over 90% percent of our school's population is at or below the poverty line. Due to this fact, many have experienced trauma and are unable to afford supplies to help them be successful in learning. Our school is approximately 50% ESL. My classroom consists of Latino, Black, Asian, Pacific Islander, and White students. Some are refugees.

Our students love to learn, are loving and lovable, and deserve the chance to have the tools needed to help them successfully learn!

They are so proud when they understand a concept, and love to help each other, whether with classwork, tying shoes, or helping when a classmate is hurt or sick. They excel in empathy!

My Project

For the last two years, the drinking fountains in our school district were turned off because of lead in the pipes. We started using commercial water bottles until water dispensers were delivered to the schools. At the end of the 2017-2018 school year, the dispensers were removed and the drinking fountains were turned back on. Unfortunately, the closest fountain is halfway across the school. When students go to use it, they miss instruction due to distance, drinking time, and distractions.

With personal water bottles, my students can fill their own bottles to keep at hand, eliminating the need to leave the room for a drink and missing important learning opportunities.

My students cannot afford to miss instruction, especially when their poverty and experienced trauma are already obstacles they must navigate.
