My Students

My students come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds in an urban neighborhood. They attend an alternative educational program designed for students in elementary and middle school who struggle in a regular school setting for various reasons.

My students deserve to feel proud, believed in, and that they are able to create something wonderful.

They struggle with a range of learning disabilities and emotional disorders, and some lack a stable home life, but even with the external stressors that surround them on a daily basis, they remain hardworking, talented, and driven.

My Project

My students deserve to feel confident and comfortable. Living in a low socioeconomic area, many of my students’ families are unable to afford celebrations and extravagant gifts. These celebratory treats and cards are meant to reward students and let them know that they are cared for! The candy and treats will be used to celebrate students’ accomplishments and special occasions helping to create a warm and friendly environment. The requested supplies will increase attendance and directly address the issue of learning gaps created by frequent absences, students will feel special celebrating their birthdays, successes, and academic achievements.

Positive moments in the classroom go a long way in motivating our students beyond the classroom.

These items are only material, but they represent a larger need in making students feel valued.
