My Students

Our school is a Title I institution located in downtown Oklahoma City. We serve a multicultural population of high school students and provide a daycare setting for their young children. Every day we empower our students in a non-traditional setting where they feel safe and secure to explore and learn at their own pace.

Our students often have challenging home situations, are experiencing or have experienced homelessness, are involved with the justice system, or are just trying to "make it" on a daily basis.

These difficulties often prevent them from attending traditional school and fully focusing on their education. I am partnering with other teachers in my school to share the amazing resources that I receive from DonorsChoose.org, so everything will be fully utilized!

My Project

I don't know about you, but shopping for groceries, toiletries, or anything specific is always daunting to me. Finding where things are in the store is not my strong suit, and I want my students to have more confidence in this area. This project will help me to organize our brand new Food and Resource Pantry while empowering students to utilize it as the awesome resource it is. The pantry supplies our students with food, toiletries, feminine care products, school supplies, and any other needs that arise!

The dignity of my students is paramount in my mind when thinking about how to serve them best.

I believe that this project will organize the pantry in such a way as to allow my students to have more autonomy and ownership. Ideally, students will take on leadership roles in keeping the pantry stocked, assisting others in "shopping" if requested, and helping me ensure that their basic needs are met so that they can focus on their schooling...and being the awesome teenagers that they are.
