My students are an amazing group of young people that sometimes get a bad rap because of the neighborhood they live in or what they look like. Our school has had a terrible reputation for many years and we are a lot of students' last option before they go to discipline school. In a school that has a bad reputation, it takes hard work, dedicated teachers and administrators, and involved parents to turn the school around. What we finally have is a staff of dedicated people that care about changing our students' futures and banding together to change the reputation of the school. My students need to feel as though they are not just some "ghetto school" where all the bad kids go and get in trouble and arrested. Reputation and the acts of many individuals in the past should not hurt our current students and their future. They should feel as though school is a safe place where they can go, have resources and materials available to them and have teachers that care.
