My Students

I have a group of 25 first graders this year. Many of my students are suffering hardships at home, have endured some type of abuse or are not getting any academic support from their family. With this being said, they still come into our classroom every day ready to learn. They are eager to see what the day holds, they adhere to our classroom rules and treat each other with respect. I want to make sure that they have everything that they need to succeed in school. This is my privilege. Teaching for me is not just a job, it is a profession that I have always wanted. It is one of the most rewarding professions.

My Project

Have you ever tried to teach a hungry child? It is NOT easy. Snacks provide children with the energy that they need to be able to learn and focus. My students are so smart and capable of so much learning, but it is crucial that they have the time for a quick snack everyday to keep them going.

Snacks foster learning and promote better focus.

It is my goal this year to make sure that my students have a snack every single day. Unfortunately, many of my students families do not have the money to purchase this on their own. I spend a lot of my own money to ensure that they have snack everyday. It is my hope, that this project will be funded to benefit my students. Thank you.
