My Students

What makes my students special? Their ability to persevere despite the many challenges and setbacks they face at such a young age. The beginning of the school year started two weeks late for my students due to Hurricane Harvey. Many of them were displaced in shelters and lost everything within their abodes! So when our doors opened, they were just happy to get some type of normalcy despite a chaotic circumstance.

What's more is that many of my all-stars come from a community that is economically disadvantaged.

They reside in homes where their parents work two and three jobs just to afford shelter and food for the family. Many have parents that are absentee and reside with extended family; others have parents that they have not seen in years.

Coupled with all of this, last year many lost their teacher for 75% of the school year. So in addition with coming from a home where it is difficult for parents to lend the assistance needed to guide their child's education, they missed out on vital instruction during the school year in their teacher's absence.

Nonetheless, they arrived September 12th ready for us to transform their lives for the better!

My Project

S.O.S! After the devastation of Harvey and the flu epidemic sweeping across the United States, my classroom is in need of cleaning supplies and materials to help keep our classroom clean and free from deadly viruses and germs!

This project is a request for help in obtaining the cleaning materials needed to keep my All Stars healthy and functioning.

Our school year was postponed for weeks, coupled with no school days due to inclement weather across the nation, we can not afford to miss ANY MORE days due to illness. With the weather fluctuating each day, our immune systems are greatly compromised. We need cleaning supplies to ensure that our desks, floors, technology and assistive technology equipment is sanitized and germ-free after heavy usage.
