My Students

My school is a special one for students with emotional difficulties, and our students struggle to move forward. Most of our students have backgrounds of trauma and all have histories of school failure. Academic skill levels are often several years behind grade level. In our environment, though, with structure, support, and carefully designed instruction, we are able to make significant progress.

Though students can see placement at our school as confirmation of their negative fates, there is so much positive activity that goes on each day.

Students concentrate in class, individually, in pairs, and with adults. They engage in high-quality activities in ELA, Math, Science, and more. They perform impressively in our My Inspiration presentations, August Wilson Monologue contest, Scholars' Brigade, Oratory Contest, Science Fair, and more.

My Project

Displaying enlarged photos--spontaneous and set-up, serious and smiling, concentrating and celebrating--of the spectacular assortment of positive things that go on daily in our school will provide uplift to students and staff as we struggle with the challenges that we face at our special school for students with emotional and behavioral problems. We have begun displaying enlarged photos, and the results have been inspiring for all.

Students are impressed to see themselves prominently posted; teachers are daily reminded of their successes, and parents and visitors take note of the visual evidence that counters our sometimes negative image.

Unfortunately, we do not have the funding this year to expand our display with current photos.
