My School and Students: I teach in an old plantation town in rural Hawai'i with a high immigrant population that is 60% Free and Reduced Lunch. Being an old sugar plantation town, many students are the children or grandchildren of immigrants and about 10% are recent immigrants that are ELL from the Philippines, Marshall Islands, or Micronesia. Since I have been teaching, there has been an increase in the number of students who attend and graduate from college and a much more determined shift to focus on academic rigor in the classroom and extracurricular activities. This shift in school culture is a long and slow shift, but the the efforts of a determined staff is swinging the pendulum in the right directions. However, being a rural school far removed from the political powerhouse of our school district in Honolulu, we struggle to get adequate funding that our students deserve.
