My Students

Nearly 95% of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch, and many of my students experience challenges from living in a high-poverty community. However, my 21st-century students will have their basic needs met.

For my students, opting out is not an option.

They are always putting forth their best. The student population is very diverse. For instance, they all have different learning styles and interests, and some students are from outside of the U.S. They have a variety of experiences to contribute to the school and classroom community, and it is necessary to have the appropriate materials and items to meet the needs of every unique student.

My Project

In this project, some of the items are hygiene products and snacks. If these items are readily available, students can worry less about what they may need and focus in class.

It is always important to remember that every students' basic needs should be met before instruction.

The specific challenges that my homeless students face deal with appearance and energy. Most students do not wish to discuss what is going on at the current moment, but I notice the decline in energy or hygiene in some of my students who are battling different situations. I am sent a notification immediately if my student is homeless by the school so I will not have any problems providing the students with the items in this project such as tooth paste, deodorant, and food. Since I can’t provide the students with meals, the cup of noodles, mac and cheese cups, and breakfast bars are easy to give to the students to take home or to eat if they come late to school because of their circumstances.

Once students' basic needs are met, I expect students to have more energy and to participate in more class discussions and activities. The hygiene products will make sure that my high school students are comfortable and confident. While engaging in different tasks, they will freely have access to these items every day in class. Ultimately, the classroom will be a worry-free and judge-free zone for students.
