My Students

I live in a smaller agricultural (apples) community. I work at a school with quite a few migrant students. Our school believes in challenging our students with creative and outside the box challenges. We offer realistic hands- on learning and authentic audiences. Ours learn to be proud of all that they do. We have almost 50% free and reduced lunch students. My school is a wonderful place to work and a great place to help kids dream big. We help them invision who they want to become.

My Project

Night of the Notables is an multifaceted project. Students choose an eminent, positive world-changer. First students read about their life (biography). Then the students write about this Notables person and finally they become that person for a performance for their parents and our community. One important aspect of this project is that students reflect a ton on their own lives and they determine who they want to become and how they want to make a difference in our world. Each notable person that is studied has had to overcome challenges a persevere to do that with changes our world. We try build into our students a growth mindset and an overcomer attitude. This project is one of the many ways we try to instill in our students that we all have a part in making this world a great place to live.
