My Students

Our students and their families are really special. We have a large school, with an ethnically and socioeconomically diverse population, and we work hard to create opportunities for our community to get together to share their unique experiences and engage in and celebrate learning.

With a majority of the families in our school living in poverty, we try to create innovative learning experiences that build our students' repertoire.

We want to offer students at our Title 1 public school the same sorts of experience that students in rich public schools receive. We are focused on social justice and educational equity.

My Project

Students at our Title I school, do not always have the supplies they need to be successful. This project makes the basic supplies readily available for all of my students. In our class, the supplies are simply left in the back of the class, so that students can get what they need and be ready to learn. They don't even have to ask. Pencils, pens, paper, glue sticks, highlighters are there's for the taking. In this way, all students will be ready to engage in various project-based units that focus on teaching peace with ourselves, each other, and the planet. We are grateful for your support!
