My Students

I am teaching in a Title I school, 90% of our students are from low-income families who are on free or reduced lunch programs. A great majority of my students are from a diverse range of ethnic backgrounds. My classes focus on career training in the medical field, which prepares students for real-life careers and college for those who are fortunate to go on. These careers are essential for these students coming from low-income families because it allows them to take care of their families and move out of the lowest 10% income bracket.

These first-generation U.S.

citizens will often be the first in their families to graduate from high school and have a career. Many may not have the opportunity to go beyond in education besides the career they obtain here at our high school.

I want to make sure every day will be a healthy start!

My Project

The consumption of snacks is almost a daily routine in my classroom. I bring what I can from home as I see my students are hungry. Most of them do have their free breakfast the school offers them, but sometimes that just isn't enough. I like to supply the snacks as then I have control of what they are consuming while with me.

The consumption of healthy choice snacks is important to me for my students well being.

I would like to be able to supply all 4 classes of mine throughout the day with healthy choices of different snacks. I notice at times its a motivator for some and others seem to come back to life a little longer throughout the day.
