Many of my students come from low socio-economic families and are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. After hurricane season, things became even more challenging. If I can in any way provide them with the things they need to succeed, it will help them achieve.
Despite all the hardship that students encounter daily, they aim to succeed in school and in life.
My students are the bottom 25% academically but I strive to help them achieve and succeed.
After Hurricane Irma and Maria, many of our students were without power for lengthy periods of time and suffered damage to their homes. When school was back in session, for many of them, school became their safe haven. Along with this, we are starting to see an increase of students to our area that evacuated Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated their homes.
During Hurricane Irma we lost our waste receptacles and know we are having an issue with littering and wastefulness.
Cans, bottles, and other trash pile up on the school sidewalks and playing fields. Having the recycling and waste receptacles will cut down on the litter greatly. During Earth week we will be teaching the students the importance of recycling and how to probably get rid of waste. Having the receptacles will put what we teach into practice. Help me make this project possible and our school and our world will be a better place.
