My Students

The 5th grade students at my school are very diverse. There are students that live in the country, as well as students that live in the housing projects. There are two parent homes and single parent homes. The one thing all of these students have in common is their love for their school. The school houses pre-k through 12th grade. Most students spend their entire education career here at this school.

My 5th grade students are full of energy and eager to learn new things.

They brighten up my day when I see their smiling faces. They are on different learning levels, but they are all ready to learn something they did not know when they woke up that morning. Nothing pleases me more than a parent telling me their child came home and explained something we learned in class to them.

My Project

In Louisiana, allergies can be a huge problem. My students use tissues to blow their nose constantly. I always try to have some hand sanitizer beside the tissue to keep germs at a minimum.

A student's attendance can greatly affect their success on assessments used by educators.

A student that misses school can get behind and create added stress. That is why I would like a big supply of tissue and hand sanitizer for my classes. Students will have access to the tissue and hand sanitizer so they don't pass germs caused by allergies or the common cold. This would be greatly appreciated.
