My Students

As a teacher at a low-income and high poverty school, I notice my students are faced with both good and challenging situations. To help them overcome the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. All the students at my school want a chance to enhance their learning and reach for the stars.

It's not about what it is; it's about what it can become.

Many of them are being raised in foster care, single-parent homes, or with a close relative. The demographics in the areas where they live are not conducive to acceptable learning. When my students walk in my door, I want them to identify their exceptional characteristics, develop positive self-esteem, and feel they are cherished. I want them to know that my classroom is a heartfelt, inspiring, and encouraging environment where creativity is encouraged through self-expression and imagination.

My students want to experience their learning using hands-on activities. When I provide an atmosphere of involvement, their learning increases tremendously. Your donation will help give us the materials to make great thinkers and make learning fun.

My Project

My students need snacks to take home on the weekends and after school. The students often go without as they live in a high poverty area and a supply of snacks ensures that no child is hungry.

When children's tummies are full, they can do their best at school.I will allow students to take snacks home on a Friday afternoon.

Many children enjoy eating snacks on their way home from school, especially as there isn't a guarantee that there will be snacks at home. In addition to letting the children take snacks home after school, snacks are helpful when a child arrives to class late and misses the free breakfast provided at school. These snacks such as Nabisco cookies, Chips, Organic Snacks, Garden Straws Chips, Nutri Grain Bars, Nabisco’s Variety Packs, grape and orange juices.
