My Students

My students are students with a lot of energy and determination who have a love for reading, writing, and social studies. I currently have forty students in my two classes. The students in my classroom are vibrant, excited, and eager to learn. They come from a low-income, high-poverty school district.

Many parents are not able to provide the life experiences that many of us would see as “typical.” It is my honor to educate these students, and I always strive to provide the best educational experiences.

"Energetic" and "excited to learn" are the best ways I can describe my students. The majority of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My Project

My students face a variety of challenges in our area. Some students receive their only meals at school. We also eat lunch at 10:30 A.M. By the normal lunchtime my students are starving and having trouble focusing and doing what is expected of them. We have to help them have more in life. It is impossible to function on an empty stomach. They must eat the snack food to fill their stomachs so that they can think and perform in school activities. They will feel better socially, emotionally, and physically.

Students need the food to fuel their minds.

If we don't help them, who will help them get the nourishment that their growing body needs.
