My Students

My students are eager, joyful scholars who come almost entirely from low-income backgrounds of color. The majority of my students hail from Latino, Africa-American, and Asian backgrounds, many of whom will be the first in their families to face the challenges of attending college. They are academic and driven young adults who are determined to reach the heights of achievement in college, despite a series of systemic disparities and barriers of race and class they face everyday.

My students will need all they can to prepare themselves for the rigors ahead in their lives.

Access to academic English through profound and complex texts is absolutely crucial to ensure their success in English class as well as in their later academic careers.

My Project

My Oakland high school is in desperate need of 21st century technology. Due to a severe laptop shortage, many students are forced to type essays and learn 21st century technology skills on their cell phones. I want to protect the educational laptops we do have with a safe, secure laptop cart. This cart will store and protect these valuable resources from damage or theft. It will be housed safely in my classroom and will extend the lifetimes of our remaining laptops.

Students can't learn the technology and STEM skills they need in the 21st century if they have to type essays on their cellphones.

Please help me ensure my students have an equal opportunity to pursue the careers of their dreams. Don't let a lack of technology be a barrier to their success.
