My Students

There is an African Proverb that states “It takes a Village to raise a child”, everyday at my school we are that village.

My students are faced with challenges and choices that as I child I did not have to comprehend.

They deal with these challenges at home and then are expected to come into school and excel. One of our projects this year will be to create a time capsule that they will open upon graduation from high school. In this capsule, they will place pictures and video that represents the parts of their home life and community they would like to change. They are also to complete a live interview in which a classmate will ask them random questions about their home and school life.

My Project

Many of our students unfortunately do not graduate high school; in fact, some will drop out of school shortly after the eighth grade. In completing a capsule, the students are saying that they plan not only to move towards their educational goals of high school graduation but they are committed to adding items to their capsule on a yearly basis. It will be a project that they begin in the 5th grade and continue throughout their school career. It will be something for them to look forward to, and then after they cross the stage, reflect on.

My students love to learn and take pride in their achievements.

While they have difficult home lives, I always tell them that they are radiant stars rising to excellence. By funding this project, you will be giving them the opportunity to shine.
