Enthusiastic first year Teacher seeks to encourage 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students in her class at Inner City School, Santee High School into exploring their surrounding communities, by broadening their goals and abilities. We are a year-round school which gives the students eight weeks per track. These students work very hard and they are so dedicated in accomplishing their goals. Knowledge is always the key. I teach the "Life Skills" class, which is a requirement of the "Leave No Child Behind" program. My students don't have much, but they are so appreciative of what they receive. I deeply hope that "Donorschoose" can help these students fulfill this part of their plan toward success. What each student hope to get out of this visit to the Pacific Aquarium is to learn about the various jobs, learn about protecting the oceanic environment, improve their ability to socialize with people from different areas and to have the comfort of knowing that people whom they've never met actually care about their well-being, enough to be part of their progression into mainstream society. Donorschoose as a contributor will be one of the mentors to my students and the contributor to Donorschoose on our behalf will be another mentor. As for myself, as their teacher my mentoring would be to always teach them to be truthworthy, honest, respectful, dependable and to judge all situations righteously. In visiting the aquarium, my students will be exposed to a useful and helpful environment. Meaning that: (1) They will see what the skills are of the aquarium guides, the animal handlers, the presenters in the classroom program, the ground keepers, the ticket handlers, the restaurant workers and the divers. They will get a chance to interact with the animals to see if this is an area of work that interests them. (2). Some students who have ideas of being a Veterinarian for mammals can see what these veterinarians do (3). Having my students to interact with students from other cities, states or local schools is a growth experience, since much of their curriculum is communication. (4). My students will be viewing videos during their visit, which shows the type of films made for the aquarium. Some of my students are interested in Graphic arts and filmmaking as a career choice. In conclusion, these students are a great bunch of kids and I feel that they deserve to learn about various jobs, ways to protect the oceanic environment, etiquette development and also that in life, there are many unknown mentors who are around to provide a helping hand.
