My Students

My students are a wonderful, diverse mix of children who come to school each day eager to learn. They are curious about the world and have many questions for me each day. They especially love projects and activities that require them to think and create. For most of them circumstances are meager, and for some home life is rough, but you'd never know from the smiles on their faces. It is truly a joy to come to school each day to see how they will solve the challenges placed before them.

My Project

I work in a school where students cannot afford to buy their own supplies. We have always bought the supplies for them and shared so that each student has access to the supplies they need to do all the projects we love to do. This year, with Covid, we will not be able to allow them to share supplies. We will still buy their supplies, however they need a place to keep them so they will not have to share. These chair back organizers will help to keep my students safe. Not only will they be able to keep their pencils, markers, and crayons separate, they will also be able to keep their library books, and curriculum workbooks nearby and thereby maintain their social distancing. In a classroom with 25 students this could help to keep my students in school where they have proper adult supervision and meals as opposed to closing schools and going to distance learning.
