The population at my school is very diverse. The ethnic makeup consist of a majority being Hispanic, African American and Filipino. We work with a great set of kids that just can't afford the basic supplies needed to be successful and for us to keep the promise of an equal education for all. This is not possible when they do not have access to some of the resources other school districts can offer. I am an African American math teacher for 8th grade algebra readiness and algebra 1 students. I have three kids myself ranging from my oldest being in her 3rd year of college and my two little ones who are in 3rd and 1st grade. Unfortunately, since I am the big bread winner of my family, I do not have extra money to put into my classroom which causes me to get creative in my efforts to make education interesting and real for all my students.
