My Students

I have 150 students in the ninth and eleventh grades. The school that I work at in Chicago Public Schools has some absolutely brilliant students. Unfortunately, the way the school system is run in Chicago is not equitable for all students. Our students deserve much more than they are getting.

Our school has been incredibly successful in preparing students for college and their career, despite the obstacles put in place by the system.

Your generosity will be beyond appreciated by my students and me!

The high school that I work at is located on the South Side of Chicago in a stable neighborhood. It is a neighborhood public school that many parents want their students to attend because it is well organized and run well.

My Project

I teach ninth grade Human Geography. While I am able to use technology for many of the maps and images that I use, these atlases will allow me to really have the students practice their geographic skills.

With these atlases I can supplement the topics we discuss, by showing them images and videos of the countries around the world on our screen but these books will allow the students to spend more time learning the geographic makeup and layout of the different continents and regions that we discuss throughout the year.

The students can work together and truly learn the geography of the world!
