My Students

I am a middle school social worker at a public charter school, which serves students who are urban and under-served.

As a social worker, I lead a weekly girls group, which consist of 15 girls from grades 5th to 8th grade.

The students in my girls group are chosen leaders, who are all college-bound. The girls group program inspires the students to be powerful, responsible, intelligent, determined, and empowered. Many of the scholars at our school come from low-income household, so the leadership group gives the girls a chance to see beyond their circumstances and envision themselves as college bound, which is the school's mission.

My Project

Our school emphasizes seeing all scholars, regardless of their background, to and through college. In order to reach this goal, it is essential for teens to learn how to get along positively with others and show respect when interacting. A solid foundation in good manners and proper etiquette is key when it comes to developing strong social skills. It is essential that the scholars know the importance of appropriate behavior as it can directly contribute to her success in young adulthood and beyond. A social etiquette class will help my scholar learn the skills needed to become productive citizens in our ever changing society.
