"I teach 29 seventh graders in the South Bronx in one of the poorest congressional districts in the country, to be more specific.
Because I wanted to reinforce to my students that they will achieve their goals despite the many burdens they already face, I bought them these shirts from customink.com that say, "College Student," on the front, and "Class of 2017" on the back--the year they WILL graduate from college.
We wore our shirts on our first trip of the year and were proud at the promise the T-shirt holds--dreams, opportunities, a better life.
My experience with customink.com was amazing. My shirts are perfect, and customer service was professional and considerate.
If I win this contest, I will buy some of my new students "College Student" shirts so that they remember that they can achieve anything they put their minds to."
