My Students

"Do we have to leave?" Our students are funny, compassionate, and imaginative children that enjoy exploring new skills and developing their literacy skills. They attend an elementary school in the Kensington section of Northern Philadelphia.

The room buzzes throughout the day as they laugh, sing, and share with their peers.

They are a thoughtful, loving, and hardworking bunch, excited to learn and grow. While they are motivated by their dreams and engaged by the opportunities presented to them, due to economic challenges within the community, school, and district, our resources are limited. As their teacher, I struggle to provide sufficient and enriching supplies that will support holistic learning. However, at our school, we are resourceful and do with what we have, but our students deserve and require more.

My Project

We are very fortunate to live in Philadelphia, where we experience all four seasons. During the winter months I have seen children come to and leave school without the appropriate winter accessories like hats, scarves, and gloves. I have also noticed students who wear ankle socks even as it snows. As a result, some trends that we have observed include high absenteeism during extreme weather.

Having these winter accessories will hopefully prepare our students for the cold temperatures in Philadelphia.

In addition to general preparedness for the winter, students will be more likely to come to school. Our students deserve these basic necessities.
