My Students

Teaching in a magnet program is a unique experience. Along with this experience, the students that come into the program come from all over the school district. 90% of them come from low income/high poverty areas and chose the magnet in order to get away from the issues that overcome their home schools. They overcome so much in order to get a quality education.

My students chose to come to the school I teach at because they know it will give them a chance to have a better future and give them more opportunities.

They are always looking for thing to be interested in and the themes that are offered at my school give them choices for their future. Their curiosity for learning makes them unique. They also find a sense of family within the magnet program. They build healthy relationships with their fellow classmates and faculty where learning and growing is a breath of fresh air.

My Project

Students who think outside the box go the distance to get their messages across. Presentations together can be costly. Having accessible materials will keep student from worrying about cost. Presentation boards, construction paper, and letter are expensive for students who come from low income households. The cost stifles their creativity and sometimes limits their voice.

Presentations materials will break the glass ceiling of creativity and foster students' voices.

I want all students to have access to materials and have to worry less about what is it going to cost them. It is a beautiful sight to see when you see how student use their voice when there are no limits to their ideas.
