My Students

Most of the students are from a low socioeconomic level. Our current enrollment is 300 students. Our population consists of 75% African American, 18% Caucasian, 1% Asian, 3% Hispanic, and 3% Others. The students at our middle school are living in a rural area and parents are unable to provide the materials that students need day to day to become effective learners. Our students are fighting to rebound from Hurricane Florence.

The closures also threaten to lose some academic gains that they made during the year.

Our county is the top county in South Carolina for unemployment. If we, as educators, don't teach them the skills here at school they will never learn how to be productive citizens and strive for excellence. The students here think that once you graduate from high school that this is it. We have students that with the right help and continue to move forward if they have the skills and given the opportunity to move forward.

My Project

I want my students to start exploring different careers and colleges. It's never to early to start exposing students to college and real life. After going on college tours, I've seen a change in their outlook on life.

I want to get this digital camera so that my students can explore the world through it.

Students will use this camera to keep a portfolio of work to show what they have learned in the areas of team building, workplace safety, technology, self-advocacy, employment, financial literacy, health and wellness, and community access.

I work with a lot of students who have special needs and would like for them to learn that everybody's path in life is different. College is not the only path to prove that you are successful and I want them to learn that by exploring different options. I believe that early exposure to this is so important because it helps change their mindset and establish goals.
