Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My students come from various cultures, and each brings uniqueness, although this can sometimes create barriers to traditional teaching. Despite their challenges, they are still energetic, fun-loving, and eager to learn.

The students we serve are eager to learn and trust, knowing we will provide them with as much love possible.

My kids are fantastic, funny, and happy students who work together to build a great community. I am the ambassador of their education and want to make sure they have lasting memories of their academic years.

My Project

Our system of structure for schooling has been shifted in the past two years. Students have learned face to face, virtual and hybrid. Many of them are exhausted from the changes, and as a result, their emotions get the best of them. They react in ways that are inappropriate and harmful at times.

In my 23 years of education, this year has by far been the hardest.

The social, emotional, and academic toll our students have gone through is often hard to watch.

I would love to have books on hand that speak to the ever-evolving changes in our society. Books about feelings, healing and changing are always great ways to share when speaking with a child in crisis.
