My Students

Teaching in a low income/high poverty school has its challenges. Our kiddos do not arrive with all the bright shiny new "tools for schools" that some students have the ability to purchase over summer break. Our students have limited ability to purchase these items; we rely on donations to fill these gaps. Our students are excited to learn and work hard to move forward. I love my little piece of "paradise" at my school. It is always wonderful to see the sparkle in their eyes when they have learned something new.

My Project

These snacks will help feed my students on days the school doesn't provide fresh fruit and vegetable snacks (2-3 days a week). Many of my students eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner at school so food at home is low and it may not be as easy for them to "just grab something before they leave home" for when they are hungry beyond the meals the schools provide. This will also give kids another choice, giving them control, so they don't have to fight for it in other ways. When kids feel in control, often times they will be more accepting when there are things that aren't choices.. such as reading a text or completing math practice.

Our school is fortunate enough to receive fresh fruit and vegetables 2-3 times a week to give the kids as a snack; these snacks will be an option for my students on days that aren't​ available or when they are extra hungry.

We are a PBIS school which means we do several things to help promote positive thinking, positive choices, and doing the right thing. As kids are seen doing the right thing, any adult in the building has tickets to pass out. These snacks will be an additional use to spend tickets on. The tickets teach about saving, priorities, and budgeting. Many things in my classroom are necessary (pencils, bathroom breaks, erasers) so it allows me to teach my kids lessons in smart "financial" choices for when they want things that go beyond the necessities that are given.
