I am a science teacher at a Title I school in lower Manhattan serving a diverse and dedicated student body. Our school community is 62% Hispanic, 28% Black, 5% are Asian, and 3% are White. Approximately 7% of our students are English Language Learners (ELLs) and 21% of students are students with Special Needs. My students commute from Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island to come to school each day; sometimes their trips are longer than an hour. Students come to us from difficult home situations, including separated families and homeless shelters, and over 85% of students receive free or reduced lunch. Although our students face many adversities, they are dedicated to their education and their academics. I want to do as much as I can for them inside the classroom to help them succeed.
