My Students

As a teacher in an urban, high poverty school district, my students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. One of the beautiful things about teaching in my school district is that when children enter our buildings, they are all treated as equals. Our students, all of them, are held to high standards and expected to perform at high academic levels. However, beyond our buildings, our students do not always receive equal care or equal opportunities.

Our students deserve to have the weight of "real world" problems lifted off their shoulders.

It is my belief that all of our students deserve to come to a school and not have to worry about their basic needs. It is then that our bright stars will be able to shine their brightest.

My Project

Many of the students in our school live in low socioeconomic neighborhoods and do not have items to meet their basic needs. Several of our students do not know when their next meal will be if it is not at school. Because we understand the hardships and the stress that such circumstances can place on our children, my school prides itself on teaching the whole child and we try to help meet all of the needs of students, academically and beyond.

Like all students, my students should have the opportunity to wake up put on a clean pair of underwear.

They should be able to feel comfortable and warm as they wait for the school buses to pick them up. Unfortunately, this is not the reality for many students that I teach. These basic items will help inner-city kids stay clean and be healthier as well as stay warm during these cold winter months.
