My Students

The students in our school community (grades 9-12) encompass a variety of backgrounds, beliefs, and ideas all of which help create a diverse learning environment. Many of our students have difficulty seeing the value of education and they have limited resources to help support their emotional, personal, and educational growth.

While I try to do what I can to engage my students it has become an increasingly difficult task.

Like most young adults my students are engrossed in the present (friends and social media) and cannot see beyond that to the importance of their school experience. As a result, students are disengaged in the classroom. Many students have attendance issues, and many also have a difficult time focusing on daily classroom tasks.

My goal is to engage students in their high school experience so that they can take control of their education and their futures!

My Project

My students are challenging themselves this semester by enrolling in an online Harvard poetry course. They are incredibly excited to be a part of the Harvard community and I want to reward their successes and commitment to a difficult course. These students are exceptional people and are so proud to be a part of this learning experience. I want to give them the t-shirts to help make their learning experience feel more authentic. Because they are engaged in an extended learning experience I am hoping that the t-shirts will help provide a more visual connection to the college and a reminder of their endeavors this semester. The t-shirts will also serve as an important reminder about their college goals and all that they will be able to accomplish in their futures!
