My Students

Our students are brilliantly resilient scholars who come from immigrant, blue-collar working households close to downtown LA. Many of them attend school year-round to catch up on reading and writing skills. These students tirelessly work toward fluency in English while continuing to persevere through the struggles of their community. The culture we are promoting at our school is college readiness through the use of AVID strategies such as physical organization, note taking, and paraphrasing. Students show up every day ready to tackle the days' objectives and build community with one another.

My Project

We forget that kids need to feel cared for, significant, and clean in order to feel their value in the world! My students come from low-income families with limited resources. These hygiene and cleaning products will help keep my students and I germ free so that we can collaborate and learn from one another. Being a reading teacher, I'm always sitting on the floor with students or coaching them at their eye level.

The Swiffer Mop and accessories guarantee that my floor is always inviting and homey for students.

Lip balm and Kleenex help them with little needs they have during this time of changing bodies and weather conditions. Keeping the classroom clean and inviting helps us all stay healthy so we can do our best learning together! Happy and healthy students makes for a great day of learning!
