My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income district with over half of our high school students eligible for the free and reduced-price lunch programs. I find that my students are faced with many challenges. While some are routed to the high school from a very rural setting, sometimes sitting on a bus for over an hour, others live in poverty with little access to resources or support. Despite these challenges, they are motivated, creative, insightful, and determined to reach their full potential.

Our students are committed to connecting, creating, and changing the world- words central to our school's mission statement.

Our public "small" high school in Oregon supports the dream that ALL students graduate ready to pursue a post-secondary education and become life-long learners. Our small school model is driven by students establishing a positive, engaging, and inclusive community where they can explore their interests in interdisciplinary classes that encourage relevant and hands-on learning opportunities.

My Project

In our Ecology class, we go outside a lot. We don't let the winter prevent us from getting into wild places, as close as our local community parks or as far as the Oregon coast. Our students are excited to get out of the classroom and see what they are learning with their own two eyes.

To do this, however, our students need the appropriate gear to keep them safe, dry and comfortable.

Many of our students come from low income families who cannot afford items like a good rain jacket. My philosophy is to never let clothing or other high price items prevent students from having the opportunity to get outside and learn. These jackets will be incredibly important pieces to add to our "classroom closet," and with such a variety of students, the diverse sizes are a must.
