I'm a teacher to some of the best people I know. My high school students are from Honduras, Somalia, Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Congo, and other parts of the world. Every day they come to school ready to learn English and make a better life for themselves.
Many have fled famine and unstable living conditions and are happy to have found safety.
They show me every day how thankful they are for their opportunity, by working on their English language skills and giving it all they have.
My students don't often get healthy snacks and I want to keep my room stocked with healthy options for them when they are hungry. I do not only want to alleviate hunger but give them healthy options as an alternative to chips and cookies.
Keeping students' stomachs full gives them the opportunity to concentrate on learning and not physical needs.
Please help me provide nourishment to my students in healthy and yummy snacks. Some of the bigger items on my list are breakfast items and granola bars. All the items on my list are healthy and high in protein. These snack sets will help me keep students motivated during our upcoming testing season and throughout the semester. My students love Kind Bars and requested these specially.
I remember having "brain food" from one of my teachers when I was little as we worked and it being a reward that also removed hunger. I hope to do the same with my students.
