Mr. Martin’s Classroom Edit display name

My students come from the neighborhood in Detroit with the highest child poverty level in the city. My school is a K-8, Title I school on the northwest side of the city. All students receive free breakfast and lunch, and many of them are struggling to just getting through the day. My students are bright, intelligent, and a resilient 7/8 graders- but they face immense challenges. While they have incredible potential, school has been a source of past shame and failure. They are still in the process of awakening to their own abilities and gifts, and as they grow more confident in themselves, they will begin to change the neighborhood and problems around them.
