My Students

All of the students attending our school come from the south and west sides of Chicago, and 100% receive free and reduced lunch. Many of them have experienced trauma in their lives and have difficulty even coming to school. Our special education students struggle with this barrier, but also a range of disabilities, including learning disabilities, emotional disturbances, and autism spectrum disorder. The typical student in our class reads at a second to fifth grade level, and many struggle with basic phonics and numeracy. 100% of our students are African American or Latino. The opportunity and achievement gaps are glaringly apparent among our student population. Additionally, students with emotional disabilities are often displaced and transient.

Our students are unable to access basic supplies on a daily basis.

They do not have the means to purchase supplies, and lose what they are given quite often due to their disabilities. Additionally, students with emotional disabilities are often displaced and transient.

My Project

Noses run. Noses drip. Noses interrupt the learning process. This time of year the sniffles begin! spent a large portion of our very meager department budget on ordering Kleenex tissue...I was given a case of toilet paper.

Imagine a classroom full of kids with special needs passing around a roll of toilet paper.

The roll drops on the floor and runs all over the classroom. All the germ filled hands touch the inner roll. Students have difficulty gathering up the thin ply tissue to make it thick enough to "blow into". Needless to say, the simple exercise of blowing a nose turns into a major deal. HELP!
