Jesus Christ. These people are teachers?
"Daily my students are faced..."
"My classroom needs to be a safe place..."
"Daily I watch my students persevere despite their many life challenges."
"Each day I have to remind my students to put up their phones due to school policy then knowing that I could find more interesting web-sites to stimulate my teaching about different cultures and internet learning tools I have to break the rules..."
Yes, and it seems that they've learned the lesson of applying for grants of any kind: You have to put your situation in the worst possible light in order to get the grant. If you simply say it how it is, you don't stand a rat's chance of getting anything.
Until you've actually been in the position of having to apply for grants or charity money, or been responsible for giving them out, you won't believe it, but the fact is that the grant allocation boards get tons of applications and every applicant is hyping up their problems to make sure they get to the top of the pile. Application letters like this are the natural end result from that race to the bottom, and if you don't follow the crowd and write like this, your application will probably fail.
