Hey, I'm Monica

I am originally from the plains of Colorado.

What will funds be used for

The funding will go towards purchasing snacks for my classroom. I know it summer right now, but I am preparing for the start of a wonderful school year. I am ready to help them learn when they arrive but I also know that I have to prepare for how they arrive to school. I already know that I will have students who arrive to school late and will not receive in breakfast.

If they don't eat, then they can't focus on the learning because they are so caught up in how their stomach feels.

That is why I have requested funds to purchase a variety of healthy snacks that are mostly protein. Students need protein to supplement school breakfast and lunches. I envision using the funds to purchase food to feed my students when they are hungry.
