My Students

Have you ever met fourth graders? Little bundles of energy! Nothing excites them more than getting to touch, see, and build their way to understanding.

As one of the top-performing charter schools in the state, our school is working daily to help our students achieve their full potential.

The students in my year-round urban charter school are 95% low income. They attend school from 8 am to 5 pm daily. The staff at our charter school works diligently within our rigorous curriculum to help education come alive!

My students struggle with issues that often fall outside the scope of understanding. From poverty to food insecurity, homelessness to incarcerated parents, they face head-on many challenges that would make adults crumble. Even with these challenges, they come to school each day trying to put their best foot forward and grow as students, in academics, and as leaders.

My Project

Our school has a unique program wherein teachers share things they are passionate about and students are exposed to new skills and learning in mixed grade level groups. This year, I will be teaching a cooking club, and these basic on the go kitchen materials will help me to give my students access to make a variety of healthy and tasty treats.

With these materials, my students will learn the connections between cooking and good health as well as build skills that will carry them though life.

By learning to cook and bake, my students will be able to develop pride in their own abilities and increase their access to and ability to make healthy choices in their lives!
