My Students

I teach social studies to 9th graders and sheltered 9th-12th grade USH in a high-poverty neighborhood. Many of my students are below grade level. The school where I teach is a diverse public high school: 23% of students are African American, 19% Hispanic, 16% Asian, 2% Native American, and 36% Caucasian.

Many of my students struggle with challenges outside of school.

Over 70% of our students are below the poverty line. Many students are in the foster care system or are homeless. Many are recent immigrants learning English as a second language. I have amazing students who use their diversity and life experiences to their advantage.

My students are from Ethiopia, Somalia, Rwanda, Vietnam, Mexico, Guatemala, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Micronesia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and other places around the world.

This year I teach freshman world history and two sheltered versions of history for English Language Learners. Some of my students have just moved to the United States and are beginning to learn English. In my class, my students will learn about the world and other cultures.

My Project

We are fundraising to celebrate the graduating class of 2020. We want to put graduation signs in yards and provide graduation t-shirts to seniors. Our students have accomplished so much over the last four years and even though they won't have the graduation they expected we still want to them to feel celebrated. Our graphic design department designed some beautiful artwork for the graduating class of 2020.

Help us celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating Seniors with a distance learning graduation celebration.

Even though we can't have our original form of graduation, we still want to honor our seniors in style. Parents, families, community members, staff, and teachers will participate in a distance learning graduation celebration. Your donation will help make sure our seniors feel recognized.
