My Students

Could you imagine not having a quiet place to read or think? My students do not have this natural and happy place due to constant budget cuts and lack of resources in our area. We are lucky to even have an open classroom where learning can happen!

My students are special little people that do not realize their potential because they do not have access to the much needed resources.

Mainly Hispanic and African-American, these children come to me in a disadvantaged state which is how they qualified to be in my class. The school they attend does not have many of the basic necessities for learning due to high poverty and budget cuts. Although they face these adversities on a daily basis, they are full of life and excited about learning.

My Project

This privacy box will give the students a chance to read in their own personal space. It will create an opportunity for them to gain a deeper love for reading on a more personal level in a distraction free place. More importantly, my students will learn how to zone in on one specific skill or just rest and take a break from the daily functions.

Many of my students only get consistency at school including food.

This project will allow them to have the option of resting quietly (independently) which some do not get due to crowded homes. Reading and resting are both essential elements for ensuring success. This project will give my students a chance to have access to these things as they do not in their daily lives outside of school.
