My Students

I teach in a small rural school where over 90% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Our diverse student body consists of African-American, Hispanic, Asian-American, and Caucasian students.

My students are creative and inquisitive collaborators whose dreams include being citizens who impact their community.

Their desire to see meaningful change in their community extends beyond the classroom. They want to be the change! Often, they discuss the need for recreational and extra-curricular opportunities in the community that are age-appropriate and sustainable, especially for middle and high school students. Although we do not have fine or performing arts classes beyond the band, our students shine when given the opportunity to perform in a school program. I suspect that their other gifts and strengths are more numerous than we know.

My Project

This is cold and flu season. This is the time of the year when many students are sick due to colds, flu-like symptoms, and allergies. Many of them hate to miss school so they come, sniffling, sneezing, and coughing, so they can continue to learn. I am happy that these students want to be in school.

I know that having hand sanitizer available for them to use will cut down on the number of germs that are transmitted.

And tissue sure helps when they sneeze or have to have to blow their noses. Our goal is their goal-to keep them in school and learning.
