My Students

I teach high school English to underprivileged kids. The majority of students in my classroom are English language learners or special education students. Nearly half of my class grew up in a refugee camp. This group of students typically doesn't get looked at as the ones that shine, but, for me, they do.

This semester my seniors are working on a passion project.

Each student has chosen a social issue or invisible problem to research, create educational resources for the public, record Youtube videos, and design an exhibit for an exhibition hall. The hall will give these students a chance to see firsthand how much they matter and how one voice, one person, can create change in this world.

In order to pull this off, we need supplies that most of my kids cannot afford to purchase. Some of these supplies include color printer ink, trifold poster board, poster markers and lettering, highlighters, paper for their brochures and educational handouts, and plastic sheet protectors. I have a vision of these kids showing their peers, school, family, and community that they matter and that they can make a difference despite their challenges.

My Project

The supplies requested will allow each student to create an exhibit to show their peers, school, family, and community their work on a selected social issue. The social issues include preventing drunk driving, teen suicide prevention, border detention centers, the agricultural cliff, racial profiling and racism. All these issues impact the world we live in; my students aim to educate others and propose a solution.

The vision is that each of the 30 students will have an opportunity to present their ideas on solutions and facts about the issue to visitors during the exhibition.

Poster boards will be the main display, but students will also create brochures on their topics for the public. These supplies will bring their ideas to life through 3D representation and color!
