My Students

The seniors at our High School are trying desperately to stay afloat as self starters. Much of their resources have been taken away from them, making it exceedingly difficult to maximize their full educational potential.

My students are trying to advance in the post-secondary world, and many of them will be the first in their family to do so.

Working on several projects is part of their senior year, and we are helping them build skills to assist them in college and career readiness.

My Project

Our college and career readiness team has decided to create a room which will solely be open to seniors while they prepare their futures. In the past, students have been disengaged with the process. Many of our students' parents have not attended a college themselves so they do not know how to help their child with what needs to be done. Students then often believe that the process is not important. This leads to class absences and not following through on FAFSA appointments and applications.

We want to engage our students in the process of preparing themselves for college or a career while minimizing stress.

In our senior workroom, students will have laptops and flexible seating options. They will have bean bag chairs, stools, and desks to choose from. They will have needed supplies such as pens and chargers while they are applying to schools and working on their senior capstone project. The added decorations such as the lanterns and stress relieving waterfall will help make the room comfortable for the students so they want to be there. We want to give them the opportunity to be self-starters and bring them back to engaging in their future.
