My Students

I work in a Title I, middle school in Texas. All of my students are considered economically disadvantaged. They face a range of other challenges every single day. The majority of the students I work with have a variety of learning disabilities such as ADHD, emotional disturbance​ or have experienced trauma in their lives. My students are kind, hard-working and amazing. They make me proud everyday.

I set high expectations for my students and I am constantly amazed by their efforts despite the many challenges they face.

My students continue to help me grow into a better educator and inspire me everyday.

My Project

One of the first things I learned in my first year teaching is that if a student is hungry, school work becomes even more difficult.

Although my students face many challenges, hunger should not be something a thirteen year old needs to worry about.

My students know they can come to my room at any time and ask for a snack. By providing snacks to my students, I have seen a tremendous increase in their effort and in the quality of their work. Many quality relationships have been built in my classroom while eating snacks. Full stomachs have helped many students who struggle to focus and pay attention in school, to be successful throughout the day!

Slim Jims, Quaker Granola Bars, and fruit snacks are some of their favorites! These snacks will go directly to my seventh and eighth grade students and help them to stay full, healthy and focused throughout the day. I will be able to give students snacks during the day, at after school tutoring and to take home.
