My Students

My students are in a Title I School in the South Bronx. These students come from a low-income community with limited resources available to help them achieve social, emotional, and academic goals. 100% of these students receive free lunch. They speak many different languages and come from different socioeconomic backgrounds. My students are eager to learn about diverse cultures and share knowledge with others. They possess leadership qualities and skills needed for success. My students are passionate about learning and sharing knowledge with others. Despite so many hardships, my students are incredible children with boundless potential.

For my students, college and career planning needs to start now, to be able to assess requirements and plan accordingly.

They fight every day to learn and better themselves. I have highly motivated and hard-working students that are determined to leave their mark on the world.

My Project

Our students will use these books to start planning for college and sparking career interests. Students will be able to use the SAT prep book to start studying and preparing . Students will also learn about their emotions and how to best prepare for college, as well as learn requirements about possible careers. They are interested in career planning, but need resources to provide them with more information. These resources will help engage and empower my students to learn about careers and start planning for college.

Working in a Title I school, I know many of my students cannot afford these materials on their own; which prevents equity and access for all students.

My students will use the SAT review book to start practicing and reviewing for the exam. They will use the career workbooks and guide to choosing a college major to start learning about what careers may be a good fit to empower them to take steps towards reaching their goals, therapy games and motivational bands to increase self-awareness and motivation and a poster board to write down their names & future careers! These resources will ultimately empower and engage my students in planning for their future.
