My Students

Our school is a Title I School; it is located in a low socioeconomic area. The majority of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. My students are full of energy and excited to learn. I am always encouraged by my students; they do not let their hardships affect their learning. They may not have everything that they need to be ready for the day, but that doesn't stop them! Their struggles only propel them to go farther, fight harder, try harder!

My Project

My school is pretty old and we do not have refrigerated air. Therefore our classrooms are really hot in this dry Texas heat. I want my students to feel fresh and be able to focus on their work and not get frustrated in these hot classrooms.

The temperatures get really high in Texas and I want my students to stay focus on their school work.

No one likes to work in the hot. This will really help my students feel relaxed and comfortable in the class. So having these fans in the class will make the class feel cool in this dry heat.
