My Students

I teach 20 wonderful, enthusiastic innovators! Some of my students are homeless, some live with extended families and others come from single parent households. Regardless of their background or socio-economic standing, they each hold a spot in my heart and though they have been challenged with various learning and social and personal adversities, they each have persevered and are striving to be the BEST they can be! My students are part of a turn-around model this year where they are being challenged with academic rigor, learning to collaborate, communicate, show empathy, self-discipline, perseverance, and how to be creative!

My Project

The majority of my students are either homeless or live in impoverished areas. Many students do not have daily access to clean bathrooms, washing machines or their own rooms for that matter. Many children come to school to get their basic needs met. That is where the supplies I am requesting comes in.

We will be able to wash soiled clothes, allow students to freshen up with the baby wipes and soap and wipe down toys and belongings that spread germs in the class.

We have a full bathroom and laundry room at our school dedicated for use just for our babies.

Sometimes students come to school with the same clothing for days which causes odor and kids to tease. To relieve that problem the disinfecting wipes would be used to wipe down book-bags and shoes that tend to be dirty. I would use the washing detergent and fabric softner to wash clothing for kids who clothes are soiled .

Though it may not seem like much these cleaning supplies will make a tremendous difference to the lives of my students who look to me as a mother away from home!
