My Students

My students are from all over the area, but brought together by intellectual gifts and commitment to academic achievement at an inner-city school boasting the top ranking in Missouri public schools.

Our International Baccalaureate school serves a high poverty community, but boasts a 100% graduation rate, acceptance to prestigious universities and programs, and a top ranking among all public schools in our state.

That success is due to the impressive commitment of both faculty and community. Students at this high poverty school understand the difference an excellent education will make in their lives and the dedication it will take to earn it.

My students graduate prepared to succeed in an ever-changing world because we work in a school encouraging curiosity, collaboration, and compassion. That said, we also face challenges of socioeconomic status: we are a high poverty school with limited resources.

My Project

"Ms. T, do you have any more tissues? This box is empty." "Ms. T, the hand sanitizer pump is empty again, can I go wash my hands?" "My hands are so dry, does anybody have any lotion I can use?" My kids are asking for items that are important to their health and wellness. Students notice how often we run out of basic health supplies in our classroom and the impact of the missing supplies on their learning. We need facial tissue, hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and hand lotion to get through allergy, cold, and flu seasons and to keep our classroom clean. These items are essential to my students' health and comfort.

Every time a student is sick, they miss opportunities to learn and grow.

Students don't like being sick or uncomfortable, and this project would help reduce that.

This project will improve my students' health by preventing the spread of germs and offering comfort to students with colds or allergies. We'll use these supplies when we cough or sneeze, which should mean everyone can stay healthier, improving students' attendance and academic engagement. It's tough to miss even one day of classes at such a rigorous school, and these items will mean fewer sick days for both me and my students by keeping our classroom and our hands clean.
