My Students

My students are amazing and I adore them. They come from a variety of backgrounds and socioeconomic levels. I teach students with a variety of special needs. They are some of the most hard working people I know. I am truly inspired each day by their strength and determination.

Despite the daily challenges they face; they come to school with a smile on their faces and are ready to learn.

They give 110% even when frustration sets in. Their smiles and sense of humor keep me laughing. I am so privileged to have the opportunity to work with such wonderful children. In May they will be taking a state test and they need some motivation to do well. I am trying to purchase: stress balls, food, and other goodies to help inspire them to do well.

My Project

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school; my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Standardized test weeks often fill students with dread: the thought of long hours of filling in answer sheets and the pressure of getting the right answers are stressful for many children.

I would like to provide a snack for my students to enjoy during the testing.

These snacks that I am requesting will be another great asset to have in my class. Snacks are an underrated yet crucial part of planning for test success. Good snacks will help my students by giving them the brain boost they need. Many students come to school without eating breakfast.
