Mr. Robinson from Houston TX is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Lean, Mean, Clean Learning Machine

My students need wipes and snacks that help clean their minds, bodies, and area so that they may focus on the educational process with minimal distractions.

My Students

My students mostly come from low-economic backgrounds. Although they are very bright and loving they have limited means that sometimes become distractions in the classroom. They are often hungry or suffering from hygiene issues or have to deal with many other things that prevent them from fully engaging in the classroom environment.

A significant number of my students are ESL students or students that have been displaced​ due to natural disasters or political situations worldwide.

I had taught students that have come from as far as African nations, China, and Israel, and as near as Mexico, Haiti, and just around the corner. The light of hope and the knowledge each child native or not brings in to my classroom is truly magical.

My Project

As many of our students and their families are still dealing with the aftermath of last year's devastating hurricane, my team and I have decided to take a proactive approach to meet the needs of our students. In most cases, many of our students have most if not all of their meals through our campus. By providing the snacks listed we are not only able to provide them to students who need them we are creating fuel for learning instead of a desire for hunger.

As hard as one can try no one can work their best if they are focusing on hunger or cleanliness.

We all just tend to work better when we are not so focused on these things by providing the hygiene wipes, we are giving those scholars the opportunity to get a 'fresh start or restart' to their day that could possibly minimize embarrassment and potential conflict.

Financial strains and other issues limit access for adequate​ health care for our students so it is imperative that our classrooms remain as clean and disinfected as possible. We want to ensure that all scholars are in a safe, clean learning environment that is healthy for learning in all forms.
