My Students

My students are 6 – 8th graders in an urban DC Public School in Washington, DC. We believe that all students who graduate will be prepared to succeed in college and civic life as leaders in the quest for social justice and anti-racism.

We focus on socio-emotional learning as a key part of our program for students and staff.

Restorative practices are the foundation of our school climate, as we enhance relationships and build community. We foster a growth mindset through which all stakeholders collaborate to achieve goals and overcome obstacles.

My Project

My project will be to group the students into small learning communities or groups. Then, by using an Evidence Based Treatment Curriculum,(EBT) I hope to help my students to recognize their traumatic event(s) and understand how they have been impacted both behaviorally and academically.

Then by using the EBT curriculum, help them to navigate and work through their struggles to improve their whole self both academically and behaviorally.

Teachers can leverage technology to achieve new levels of productivity, implement useful digital tools to expand learning opportunities for students, and increase student support and engagement. It also enables teachers to improve their instruction methods and personalize learning.

I find that using laptops change classroom circumstances, making it easier for teachers to engage students in substantive, collaborative, project-based work.
