I teach in a rural, low income community in Northern California. Many students in this area don't live in a traditional family environment - nevertheless our school has an extremely high graduation rate. I am very fortunate to work with many students who are focused and dedicated and have a great desire to better their situation and that of their families.
My students care about their school, their community and each other.
They have so much heart and dedication and it is such an honor to work with them. I am so lucky to teach student leadership and help my students transform our school into an inclusive environment where all students will feel welcome and honored. Since the Camp Fire on November 8, 2018 my students have continued to work hard and do for others. We have started a weekly social activity and my students have been instrumental in making it happen each week.
The ASB leadership class is the heart of our high school. The requested materials will help us pick up where we left off after the Camp Fire forced us off of our campus and our community. The tables, paint markers and poster board will help us to remind students of upcoming events and their Bobcat spirit.
A huge part of our mission is to instill pride in our school and help students learn to embrace and love being a Bobcat.
We accomplish this through activities and consistent reminders to RISE Up (this stands for: Respect, Integrity, Service and Excellence). Our new beginning and continuing challenges after the Camp Fire make it even more important that we focus on the positive!
