Teaching in today's urban public high schools is a daily struggle. From apathetic students to uninvolved parents, from lab classes of over 42 to lab supplies for none, it is easy for teachers to simply throw up their hands in despair. However, through the selfless generosity of donors like yourself, I have been motivated to keep the fire of teaching alive within me, and have used the supplies purchased for my students to provide them with a rigorous, engaging, college-prep curriculum. My students, over 50% of whom qualify for free/reduced price lunches, have been able to succeed despite the numerous odds stacked against them, thanks in part to the labs, experiments, and other activities made possible by donors like you.
