Our middle school is in a low-income, urban setting. Students come from diverse backgrounds. We have many English Language Learners and special needs students. This is just part of what makes our school so special.
My favorite thing about my students is how eager they are to learn.
School is a safe space where they can explore their potential. My job is to teach students to read and write but they do so much more when they walk through that door. They collaborate, they struggle, and they learn that with hard work they can grow as students and people.
Our school's musical theater program has been going strong for 8 years now. Unfortunately, our sound equipment has not been updated since long before that.
As the director of the musical theater program, it hurts when my talented performers are not able to be heard.
Students in this program work so hard and for so long that it is quite demoralizing when their microphones do not work as they should.
I am requesting a new set of wireless microphones so that students in the musical can be confident that they will heard when they are on stage. Please consider donating to this important after-school program!
