My Students

Imagine being the first person in your family to earn your high school diploma. For many of my students, they are the first in their family to graduate from high school, and for many, to continue their education at a technical school or college/university. Many students come from low-income families where the family struggles to maintain a quality of life. Students seek activities to keep them safe, give them something productive to do with their down time, and to help them become better students so that they have a chance to earn scholarships to help them fund their post-secondary education opportunities.

The students come from low-income families of various cultures and various skill levels, seeking to strengthen their skill set in order to further their academic and future careers.

The students are in an urban environment where opportunities to “do the wrong thing” are abundant, yet they still show up every day ready to learn.

My Project

Students need to learn how to organize and take care of their learning environments. We are slowly attempting to rebuild the classroom and have been realizing things that are needed/missing.

Due to having to relocate suddenly, many of the classroom supplies were left in the old building and things like organizational tools were left behind.

Our school district has attempted to support us with needed items but limited resources only go so far. We need markers to help us better annotate text and we need cleaning supplies like a broom and dust pan to help us keep our space clean.
