My Students

The students that I work with are individuals, in a very rural community, with very limited resources, in central Pennsylvania. Even though our community has limited resources, the students make the best out of every opportunity provided to them and they persevere.

My wonderful students have a strong desire to be the best that they can be and they never fail to amaze!

These students are nothing short of amazing and make coming to work exciting. They have a genuine and honest spirit that makes being with them an experience that is second to none.

In preparing the students for their life in the post-secondary world, I want to provide these amazing students with every opportunity possible to enhance their chances for success and it starts with the ability to have their basic needs met.

My Project

Imagine coming to school from a weekend of having very little or no food in your home. You are hungry and unable to focus upon learning because all you can think about is how your stomach won't stop rumbling or cramping, or how you have a headache because you haven't eaten all weekend.

Our school has initiated a weekend food backpack program for our students in need and have started a food pantry but we are in desperate need of a refrigerator.

What we have come to realize is that we are only able to send home "dry goods" and not the fresh fruits, vegetable, meats, and frozen food items that would be beneficial to the students because we do not have a refrigeration system in our food pantry.

With a refrigerator, we would be able to purchase, store, and provide these very beneficial food items for students so they will no longer have to struggle through the weekend without food and will be able to help level the playing field for their mental, physical and academic success.
