My Students

My students live and are educated in one of the most dangerous cities in America - Camden, New Jersey. Our school and the surrounding district are constantly classified as being an area of “highest need,” and my students are all too aware of this fact. However, this does not stop them from dreaming big dreams and setting high goals for themselves. They are a motivated, dedicated, and all-around wonderful group of students who deserve the best!

My students refuse to allow their circumstances to hold them back!

They are determined to succeed in the classroom and to uphold our school's long-standing tradition of 100% high school graduation and college acceptance. Walking in the footsteps of those who have gone before them is a point of pride for my students, and it is my goal to provide them with everything that they need to succeed.

My Project

My students have joined the middle school newspaper club. I have many students who are always asking thought provoking questions. They want to know whats going on in the district and what it is like to interview people as a journalist. Students are working hard to get their word out about the school!

My students are hoping that this club will give them a voice in the school!

The students are looking forward to interviewing those around them. These Philips Voice Tracer Audio Recorders will help students when interviewing different people. It will give them the ability to ask questions and not have to stop to write down the person's answers. It is one step to having them feel like a real journalist!
