My Students

I have the privilege to be apart of the lives of some of the most talented young people in Oakland. I work with a diverse group of young leaders from all over the world. Newcomers from many areas leave our demographics at 39% Asian, 38% African American, and 21% Hispanic and make cultural competency and community values strengths at my school.

The students are optimistic, interested in the world around them, and determined to create a better future.

I have noticed in them that they have an organic respect and appreciation of adults who they interact with. I have also noticed that the unique barriers to education that each student negotiates is part of what makes these scholars, and their success so special.

My Project

My students are constantly producing high-quality work but aren't always able to show it off. I'm asking for a wireless color printer to remind students that their hard work is worth investing in. I love creating opportunities for students to showcase multiple forms of interest and intelligence, so I always incorporate creative projects in my curriculum.

However, due to recent budget cuts, our classroom is limited to supplies - this project will invest in my student's potential.

My students have created scrapbooks, character Instagram posts, resumes, research papers, newspaper articles, etc. I don't want their creativity to stop just because our budget can't afford to supply enough printer paper. I want to give my students the supplies and tools they deserve in order to succeed.

Other supplies that will help my classroom produce quality work are pencils, electric pencil sharpener, highlighters, paper, tissues, and a wireless presentation laser pointer. The laser pointer and presentation clicker will make it a lot easier for students to master their public speaking skills.
