My Students

My students are unique in that they come from diverse backgrounds, but are able to come together to form a family style bond within our school. Students are held accountable for one another and thrive on the idea of being needed and important.

I teach at an alternative school.

Sometimes these students are forgotten by mainstream. Our staff works hard to make these young minds productive and an asset to the community. We have a very high success rate due to the family style atmosphere that is created within our building.

Despite being labeled, our students give back to the community. They take pride in their school, themselves, and each other.

My Project

We don't have enough textbooks for our students. It is not in the budget to buy any more. We share books on a daily basis and students can't take books home to study. Having a textbook for each student will enable them to work individually and to continue their studies at home. Class time is precious and should be utilized for direct instruction. Right now, we spend a lot of time on classroom management because we have to share books. We only have three World History books for ten students and five Civics books for 10 students. We need so much more, but if we could start with this it would make a difference.
