My Students

My students are fun, intelligent, interesting, and inquisitive to say the least. They have tons of energy that keep me busy all day! Most days, the kids arrive to school and we work on the same things as other children all over the country. We learn about numbers, shapes, colors, letters, etc.

So what makes my kids different from most other classes?

They are immigrants that have no English language. They come to our school not only trying to learn all the concepts expected in pre-k, but they are also trying to learn and build vocabulary in a second new language. They live in the highest poverty area of a large city in Texas. Most of my students struggle to have their basic needs such as food, clothing, and housing met every day. Their financial resources are so limited that more often than not they go without the school supplies they need to learn.

The school they attend services the two housing projects in our city in Texas. Most students have social-emotional trauma, they lack family structure and live in poverty.

My Project

My students attend an extended school day schedule. Our day runs from 7:40 am till 6:00 pm. Being Pre-k students they are the first ones to eat lunch at 10:30 am. They have to wait till 5:00 pm till supper. As you can imagine by 2:00 pm they are ravenous ! Our school is 100% free lunch , so the poverty is extreme.

Please help me feed my young learners!

Many of my students the only meals they get are the ones provided at the school. This means these young children can go over 12 hours without a meal. That's why I'm requesting snacks like Gold fish crackers, Cheeze Its, and chocolate chip cookies. They are non-perishables that can be used in the classroom but I can also send home on Friday . This way they will have something to eat during the weekends.
