My Students

My students are energetic, eager to learn, and fun-loving. Even through some tough situations some of my students face at home, they come in every day really giving it their all. At our school, one hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Coming from an urban district and a Title I school, my students do not have as many supplies and opportunities as the surrounding districts.

"The need for imagination as a sense of truth and as a feeling of responsibility, these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education." --Rudolf Steiner.

For this reason, I work extra hard to raise money for supplies that will be used by my students. These TpT resources will benefit my students in so many ways, and teaches them a deeper lesson of how good the world can be. Over the years when I have told my students that we have gotten a project funded and we were getting supplies, the looks on their faces were priceless. My students are so appreciative, and donations from kind-hearted people really impact their lives in such a major way!

My Project

These snacks will provide a little something to keep my students stomachs full as they are working on their assignments online. Due to the low socio economic demographics at my school my students usually do not have the means to afford snacks. Therefore, I know that these snacks will give them a nice surprise so they can have something to smile about during these times as we are dealing with the virus. Since the virus my students have been stuck at home without any snacks to munch on! I know that they will appreciate and be thankful for these kind donations!
