My Students

As a teacher in a large school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Since our school is not the home school for many students, many commute upwards of an hour each way. This has allowed our school to be comprised of a wide array of backgrounds. While this is one of the many items that makes our school so unique, the challenge still remains. The question is, how do we provide the resources and educational opportunities to allow every student to succeed?

My Project

In May, I am taking my students on an overnight field trip and instead of investing money on bottles of water, I would like to be able to provide reusable water bottles to them. These bottles will allow the students to refill as needed instead of continually purchasing drinks while on their trip.

While this is the costlier option, it will help the students understand the importance of being environmentally friendly, as they reduce the amount of plastic they use on a daily basis.

Our school is trying to be more environmentally friendly and this is the perfect way to help with that initiative! Hopefully, they will continue to use these bottles during school hours as well and spread the word to their friends!
