It has been a pleasure to work with my students during the past year and some for even three years! They are an amazing group of 12 students, who truly exemplify what is means to be resilient, in their personal and school lives. I work at a school in the heart of Brownsville, Brooklyn, a community plagued by violence and poverty. Many of my families battle with struggles such as homelessness, poverty, living in foster care, etc. In addition to their personal struggles outside of school, each of my students has a learning disability and has had many failures in their short educational carriers before entering my classroom. As a team, my students and I, have worked tirelessly to build a STRONG learning community where everyone is a key member of the team, respects and encourages one another, and is seen for their strengths and not their challenges. Watching my students blossom into confident learners and role models in our school has been an honor. Our journey continues another year!
