My Students

Can you imagine living in the projects and seeing desperation all around you? My students ride a bus from their projects into our semi-affluent neighborhood where our school is located, wanting to find a way out! They work hard and overcome obstacles many would shy away from. They are amazing and achieve more every year. They have ideas, thoughts, and dreams. They only lack the money to have these dreams come true. Hearing stories from first-hand survivors of such an atrocity as the Holocaust gives them the courage to survive their lives.

My students are a multi-cultural group who become a family within our time together.

They have created murals, gardens, benches and more that brighten the day of all the students in our school. They created murals to honor Anne Frank and wrote Anne Frank quotes on benches. Tolerance is a huge part of our curriculum and plays an important part of all that we are and do. We brainstorm ideas and I write grants to help their ideas come to life. For the last 10 years, we have even raised the money to go to South California to tour the Museum of Tolerance.

My Project

One of the warmest feelings I am fortunate to have with my students and my own children is when we snuggle under a blanket, read books and sip on hot chocolate! I may not be able to create a home for some of our youngest homeless students, but I can help provide them with the comforts of home!

As we approach Anne Frank's 90th birthday, it is important for children everywhere to learn about the positive impact Anne has made on our world.

As my students create these blanket, book and chocolate gifts, they will learn about the positive effects Anne's life has had on society.
