My Students

Picture a group of kids who are growing up in homeless, transitional, or semi-permanent housing. That's my room. As one of the few states that guarantee family housing, our shelters are overflowing. The state has purchased temporary apartment housing near our school, and well over half of our population is in our area for a short, undetermined amount of time. With one hundred percent of our student body receiving free breakfast, lunch, and snack, school is their safe place, for many of our student body, it is their safe haven.

Despite obstacles that would be too much for many adults, they remain bright, funny, and fun-loving, and they really enjoy the safety and security that school brings.

Our school not only keeps the kids safe, but it's a place where learning comes alive and is so much fun!

My Project

We are so exceptionally fortunate to live in New England. We enjoy the four seasons and we love snowshoeing in the winter and exploring nature outside.

It's also exceptionally cold, the first snow coming down just this morning.

As a part of a winter break care package, we'd like to provide each student with a warm sweatshirt and blanket to take home. We've already ordered books and flashlights so students can stay cozy with a warm book over the break.

We know it's important to our families that their students continue to read over the holiday break and into February vacation. We have no doubt that these blankets and sweatshirts will be cherished all winter long.
