My Students

What I love about my students and what makes them special is that they are extremely diverse in several aspects of life. Ethnically/Racially, 67% of my students come from minority backgrounds, from Hispanic to Pacific Islander. In addition, 47% of my students are economically disadvantaged, qualifying for free or reduced lunch. Lastly, my students are a variety of types of learners, from English Language Learners to Deaf and Hard of Hearing learners.

Students are constantly in my classroom, before/after school, during brunch/lunch, and even during passing period when they should be getting to class.

I strive to create a positive safe space that is welcoming to all students. Many students have been receptive to my efforts by being open and honest with me about their lives and my teaching practice.

My Project

Primarily, these cleaning products will make a difference in my students' learning by preventing the spread of germs. Less germs will lead to less of absences from being sick for both the students and me. Specifically, students will be able to use the facial tissues to keep their noses clear and the hand sanitizer to keep their hands clean.

Not only will these cleaning supplies create a fresher, cleaner, and healthier space, but they will also promote a welcoming learning environment that promotes a respect for property and focuses on learning.

My classroom will continue be a place where students enjoy coming to and have a desire to be a part of whatever is occurring inside. Please and thank you in advance for your consideration and potential donation!
