My Students

My students attend a Title I school in Pennsylvania, and all receive free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast. They attend a typical, inner-city school. Most face serious obstacles before they even walk through​ the doors in the morning. Our goal is to make our school a safe and loving environment.

Our students come from diverse backgrounds and different countries.

This makes our school pretty special in so many ways. The students all work so hard and are very deserving of this project.

My Project

My students don’t always have a safe quiet place to read or study at their homes or in the neighborhood. I want to create this place in my classroom. I would love to give them a soft pillow they can cuddle up on to read. I’d love to fill the bookshelves and the bins with books and technology that they can use whenever they want. I want them to have a beautiful space they look forward to going into to do work independently or work with their friends on classroom projects by using the table. They can cuddle up on the chairs or with the throw pillows to do their work. Every child needs a happy place to escape to and I want this to be it.
