My Students

My students live in an impoverished area of South Los Angeles. All of my students come from low-income families. We are a Title I school where ninety nine percent of our students receive free meals. My students always try their best at everything and anything despite the challenges that they face in their daily lives.

They are already not expected to have it as easy as others, but we learn that with hard work and consistency, they can be "unique" or different from the rest.

My students are so eager to learn that it makes coming to work easy!

My Project

My students will receive important life essentials such as deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, lotion, hand sanitizer and lip balm after a life skills lesson. They will be able to bring these products home to use, or even keep some of them in their backpacks for daily use at school. Our classroom will discuss important life essentials and good hygiene habits, such as brushing your teeth, showering, and using deodorant and lotion on a daily basis.

We will discuss how important it is to be clean and healthy because when you look good, you feel good.

When my students receive these products, they will have the resources they need to begin healthy hygiene habits.

I believe that when you look good and feel clean, you have a more positive attitude about yourself and your learning.

This will impact each and every student in my classroom because they will all come to school with high self-esteem and ready to learn.

Thank you for supporting my project :)
