My Students

My students strive for success despite a multitude of challenges. My students are caregivers, employees, and financial supporters. And yet they strive for academic and athletic excellence.

My students are positive, enthusiastic go-getters who do not let obstacles stop them.

They see roadblocks as challenges rather than deterrents. My students are visionaries who overcome barriers.

My students are the future leaders of our world. They are diverse and represent the diversity of our world. My students will change and enhance the face of our world.

My Project

My students have wonderful, touching stories to tell and need an outlet for sharing their stories. In addition, due to the consequences of the pandemic, many students are experiencing extremely stressful situations and need somewhere to unburden themselves. Daily journal writing will provide the perfect outlet for these needs and help me to better understand how best to support my students.

Through their daily journal entries, my students will have an opportunity to feel heard.

It will give them a chance to write about what is on their mind. My students will experience being writers and expressing their feelings.
