My Students

My students are very diverse. Here at our high school, we have students from all over the district, not just selected zoned feeder schools. In keeping with the Texas Early College High School blueprint, many of my students are from populations that are historically underrepresented in college courses including first generation college goers, students of low socioeconomic status, African American, Hispanic, and at risk students.

Although they come from all over the district, from diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, as part of a small school, my students are like a family.

Many of the students lack someone at home to guide their academic journeys, but are still motivated to be successful both in high school classes, and those classes that will earn them associate degrees before high school graduation!

My Project

These fruit trees and raised bed garden planters will add additional planting space for our school/community garden project.

The fruit trees will not only provide much-needed shade for students visiting the garden but will provide harvestable fruit to be shared with our community partners.

Planting boxes and fabric bags will allow additional classrooms of students to plan and implement planting projects throughout the school year as well as increase the garden yield allow our garden to provide nutritional foods to more students in need. Students are eager to learn about growing additional types of fruits and vegetables, more beds will allow for more planting.
