My Students

My students come from all over the world, from different families and financial backgrounds, but they have one thing in common. They all LOVE learning! Our school is at the edge of a rural city a block from the beach, and it serves a diverse group of children from over 15 different countries. Of my 20 students, 12 are English Language Learners, and more than half receive free or reduced-price​ lunch.

My class is a vibrant group of learners who are excited by project-based learning activities, love to create, explore, and manipulate, and love to share their learning with others.

They are engineers, architects, problem-solvers, team players, makers, creators, and hands-on learners. They are energetic, silly, and extremely active children who love to get up and move. They make me excited to come to work each day!

My Project

My students strive to do their hardest each day no matter what time of day it is. In order for them to stay focused and ready to learn they need to come to school fed and should have a snack to eat during the day to help maintain their focus. With over 50% of our students at our school on free and reduced lunch, money is an issue. The majority of our students do not bring snacks, whether it be a financial reason or otherwise.

If we as teachers have a difficult time learning and teaching on an empty stomach, we can not expect our students to learn on one either.

I am requesting a variety of snacks for our 2nd-grade students so that every child can have a full belly and be at their best. My hope and dream for this project is that being hungry will not be something my students ever have to worry when on our campus for the rest of the school year. If they need to take a snack for, after school, they would be more than welcome to do so as well. Learning is so important, but serving our students' basic needs like hunger and love will always be at the top of my list of priorities as a teacher.
