I would describe my students a very energetic group who takes pleasure in exploring and learning new things. My students are always open to new experiences in the classroom and they make the best of any situation. My students are very honest and open about their feelings and views on life. They are very free spirited. Majority of my students come from poverty which unfortunately makes a lot of them angry with the world. However, they understand that our classroom is where they can come learn, relax and prepare themselves for a brighter future. My school is a very small family oriented school. Many students are siblings and family members of one another. Parents and teachers have close relationships. We have high expectations for all our students and we make no excuses for them not being able to learn. My school really focuses on leadership and building leaders for the future.
