My Students

My students not only come from a low-income area, but they are also working to learn the English language. Despite all the hardships they have outside of school, they come to school ready to learn.

I teach at a Title I school, where 88% of our students receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.

We provide Blessings in a Backpack, where students can take a bag of food home on the weekends.

Regardless of their circumstances, my students walk into my classroom with smiles on their faces. They are so eager to learn. They deserve the materials that will help to push them to reach their full potential.

My Project

My class is in need of reusable water bottles to stay hydrated and be ready to learn each and every day. Your donation will go toward each student having their very own water bottle that will stay at school all school year long. It is so important for students to be and stay hydrated throughout the school day. Taking a quick drink break from the water fountain is not allowed as our school is trying to reduce the spread of germs.

Students are currently using a small plastic cup to take a drink of water.

This has them leaving class more frequently. I am hoping that getting water bottles will help to also keep them in class.
