My Students

I have had the opportunity to work with 60 amazing high school juniors (who will soon be SENIORS!) for the entire extent of their high school experience through the AVID program. AVID is a program that is meant to lessen the gap in achievement among students of different ethnicities and social class while preparing them for success when they enter college.

These students have quickly become my "children" and we share a unique passion for learning and treading a goal-oriented path.

They are passionate about creating a difference in their community and I know that they will do so through furthering their education. Many of them aspire to be doctors, nurses, lawyers, educators, and business owners; there is no doubt in my mind that our future will be in good hands as long as these students are involved.

All of these students are on track to attend a four-year university, with many of them already working to obtain licenses in the medical field, and dual enrollment courses. All 53 students will be first-generation college goers, and are currently enrolled in the AVID elective to help prepare them for college success and career readiness.

Your generosity would be greatly appreciated!

My Project

I would like to purchase 53 individual copies of the text, "The Naked Roommate" a book that provides information for students who will be transitioning into college. This book will help them begin to explore the idea of college; the good, the bad, and the ugly.

These books will continue to enhance my students understanding of college and prepare them for what life will be like beyond the boundaries of our high school classroom.

These books will provide my students with information, and support in regards to preparation for college. Many of them have never left the boundaries of our city, and have minimal exposure to communities beyond New Mexico. This book will adress many of their worries and concerns and help them mentally prepare for one of the biggest transitional periods that they will ever encounter.
