About 90% of my students come from unstable homes and many other challenging social pressures. My constant drive to improve their self esteem and feeling of success is what makes my job all the more rewarding. Creating a positive environment for my students enables them to drift away from gang violence, home concerns, and other negative situations. Often times they have been let down so many times that it hinders their ability to show their potential in the classroom. We lack the supplies to go above and beyond the average learning experience on a daily basis. Unfortunately our students understand that they do not have everything that other schools may have and that becomes a let down in many cases.
