My Students

The school, started 16 years ago, has been a shining star in the School District of Philadelphia. It is unique in that it is a traditional, neighborhood public school, but has a private partnership with the University of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers.

I teach a diverse group of learners in the University City section of Philadelphia; my students come from racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse families.

The school is a community of learners whose mission is to maximize the academic and personal competence of all its students to become successful life-long learners and productive citizens in a diverse and highly technological society.

My Project

My students love to read and would love having books from their favorite authors included in our library. We just had an opportunity to meet Jason Reynolds last week, and my students are requesting more of his books.

We also love to read series books, so Wings of Fire, Song of the Trees and Prodigy and Champion will be well-read.

When students read they not only improve their vocabulary and comprehension, they also gain critical thinking skills and social skills like empathy and compassion. Your gift will not be in vain, and we are very appreciative of your genuine thoughtfulness.
