My Students

I teach at a school where most, if not all, of my students come from low-income households. In fact, it is not surprising that at times, some of them would even ask for bus money from me to be able to go home. Last year alone, my colleagues and I secretly donated winter coats to two of our students who have been wearing light jackets for the whole 6 months. This school year, my goal is to make my students more active learners by first feeding them. These students don't eat school lunch and therefore, forego lunch. After 12 noon, all of them are becoming restless as their stomachs grumble. It is for these reasons that I hope that this organization would help provide simple snacks for these kids as they struggle both academically and economically.

My Project

Feeding minds start with feeding lives. All of the supplies that I chose are snacks that my students will be consuming for as long as there is supply available for them. These are really urgent needs as these students don't want to eat school lunch every single day. Instead, they wait for dismissal at 2 pm for the next opportunity to eat. At a little past noon, however, students are becoming restless already. Most of them are off the wall and it's difficult to contain them. These snacks might be answer to this. In addition, these snacks will also promote our school-wide reward system for better behavior. It will also encourage students to remain in class and do the work. Consequently, it will lead to better grades and credits which is something that schools with these demographics constantly worry about year after year.
