My Students

I am a teacher of 6th-8th-grade students. All of my students are diverse learners. They have special needs ranging from mild learning disabilities to social/emotional difficulties. I teach math, science, and writing. My kids are from a working class, low-income area. We are a very family-oriented school and have great family involvement.

My kids benefit greatly from the enrichment that extra materials provide in the classroom.

We can grow in our learning if we just have the materials that we need.

My Project

For this project, I am asking for several types of snacks and some juice to give to my students prior to standardized testing. Things like granola bars, goldfish snacks, Pop-Tarts, grape juice, juice boxes and so much more really motivate students.

A student who is not focused on the basic needs of hunger and thirst can focus on the task at hand.

More focus on the task is equivalent to better scores. Giving my students greater success is one of the best gifts I can give them. Thanks for helping me help them do better and feel better on testing day.
