My Students

Have you ever met fourth graders? Little bundles of energy! Nothing excites them more than getting to touch, see, and build their way to understanding.

As one of the top performing charter schools in the state, our school is working daily to help our students achieve their full potential.

The students in my year-round urban charter school are 95% low income. They attend school from 8 am to 5 pm daily. The staff at our charter school works diligently within our rigorous curriculum to help education come alive!

My students struggle with issues that often fall outside the scope of understanding. From poverty to food insecurity, homelessness to incarcerated parents, they face head-on many challenges that would make adults crumble. Even with these challenges, they come to school each day trying to put their best foot forward and grow as students, in academics, and as leaders.

My Project

Next quarter, my students will dive deep into the time and movement that led to the passing of the 19th amendment and gave women the right to vote. Our curriculum will provide the baseline resources, but I am hoping to build our classroom library with books that will help my students to understand the struggle and sacrifices that both women and men made to ensure that women got this right. In addition, I am seeking resources that will connect to my students and help them to understand that the struggle for equality continues today- books about both voting during the Civil Rights era and the voting process. I cannot wait to see the growth in my students' knowledge and understanding with the addition of these resources to our classroom!
