My Students

My class is a 12:1:1 classroom. We currently have 10 students, 1 paraprofessional, 1 medical paraprofessional, and 1 classroom teacher. We represent Haiti, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Africa. My students are an excited group with a range of disabilities. We have students with ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, Epilepsy, Emotional Disability, English Language Learners, Speech and Language Impairments and those who have Learning Disability. In this classroom, we don’t let these disabilities limit our potential to reach our goals. This is a self-contained bridge class for seventh and eighth graders.

My class has faced so many personal adversities that should have discouraged them from having high expectations like, losing one or both parents, medical setbacks, violence, homelessness, living in shelters and bullying, but they push through because they want to be change agents.

Some of my students will be first-generation high school students in their family and others will be first-generation high school graduates. This classroom allows the students to learn without restrictions and to see themselves in a positive light.

My Project

Being a teenager comes with many distractions but hunger shouldn't be one of them. When a child is hungry, it is difficult for them to do their best and be their best. Also providing our kiddos with a safe environment is very important to us. Many of the chargers for our iPads have experienced wear and tear and we don't have a sure power source to plug them all into.

Your donations of healthy snacks like granola bars, apple juice, chips, Pop-Tarts, peppermints, gum, cereal bars, Goldfish, water, usb power cords and power strip will allow us to provide our kids with a hunger-free zone and a safe charging area.

The snacks will help them to stay energized and focused throughout the day! With this project, we want to remove hunger from the classroom and allow our kids to be able to do their best and reach their goals. The new usb power cords will replace our old cords and our kiddos will be able to have fully charged iPads and a safe area to plug them in.
