My Students

My students live in a city that has been ranked as the most dangerous city in the country. We have a high level of poverty; the problems in the community are felt in our schools.

Many of our students do not have strong parental support and guidance.

We have students that go to school full-time and work several part-time jobs to help sustain the livelihood of their families. While the students have an assortment of obstacles they face every day, I also say that they are hard-working and intelligent individuals. It is my job to ensure that when they graduate, my students are prepared to be functioning citizens in society. ​As a teacher in a Title I school district, I observed that many of my students lack the basic necessities for school. I want my students to be successful in everything that they do.

My Project

Starting school without school supplies is probably one of the students’ nightmares. It is difficult to focus on school work when you don't have the materials and supplies to help you to succeed. My project will provide my students with some of the extra accessories that some parents in my school cannot provide for their children. This project will provide students with notebooks, pens, pencils, and accessories to help my students so they would be readily available when then students need them.

I want my students to be completely ready for school and not to worry about their school supplies.

My project will give students a fresh start for school in September.
