My Students

When people collectively come together and strategize and plan, working together and acting together, they create a power that they can effectively use in their situation to effect change. Rev. Dr. James Lawson, Jr.

The young people at my school are learning the importance of collective action and community every day - both in school and in their day to day lives.

They are members of an award-winning robotics team, the force behind the short film awarded top honors at the Film Prize Jr competition, the aspiring athletes of our basketball and track teams, the entrepreneurs who create and produce their own clothing lines, and the earners of more certifications than any other school in the area. Our students are inquisitive and invested in the world around them. They respond with passion to injustice and are learning to develop their collective power.

I see my students during the school day but also out in the community, doing their work and what brings them joy. I am consistently impressed and inspired by their intelligence, drive, and commitment. Their energy and enthusiasm brings me so much joy.

My Project

Extracurricular opportunities are crucial for young people's educational experiences. Sci High is just developing our athletics program, which currently includes volleyball, girls and boys basketball, and track. This year, we are starting Sci High's first ever soccer team!

Our athletics program is fundraising every step of the way to give our students the items they need to develop their skills.

The goal will be used to help our students practice on our yard, since our school does not have access to a practice field.

I started this year's soccer team because students came to me asking for a school team on which they could play. Please help us make their wish come true!
