My Students

Located in the Nation's capital, the school where I teach serves the needs of a diverse community of students and families. My work is complex as I navigate how to build relationships and community across lines of difference like race, class, language, and country of origin.

As a Language Arts teacher, working with primarily English Learners, my most important task as a teacher rests on my ability to fully articulate the power, complexity, and impact of language.

To communicate is to learn to advocate for oneself and one's community, and that reality is the cornerstone for what I do.

My students learn the importance of vulnerability as they develop their capacity to communicate through reading, writing, listening, and speaking. No experience is more humbling or profound than when a student's potential has been fully realized through their dedication to themselves and their pursuit of knowledge and self-expression.

My Project

We are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the prevalence of the Omicron variant, case rates continue to increase. Learning in-person is essential for students and we can continue to do this as long we have the proper mitigation measures in place. Currently, my district only provides students with surgical masks, but new CDC guidance recommends that everyone upgrade to masks that have better filtration.

I am requesting 35 packs of child-sized KN95 masks from Bona Fide Masks.

Each pack contains ten masks. These products have a filter efficiency of greater than 95% and are designed in a smaller size. The masks will fit well, and the improved filtration will help to keep kids safer from any potential COVID-19 spread. I want to do everything I can to keep kids in person, and I believe that upgrading masks is one important component in this process.
