My Students

My students are a highly diverse group of young people from Wisconsin. Ours is a large urban high school that serves 2200 students from all backgrounds. My students are united by their passion for public speaking and acting. They work all year preparing and performing speeches in and out of school.

Finding their voice and speaking passionately affects every aspect of their lives; it gives them the confidence they need for their futures.

These students perform throughout the year in school and at speech and debate competitions. They're very successful, and most go on to earn scholarships, attend college, and make a difference in our society.

My Project

Our students prepare and perform many different types of speeches. These range from original persuasive and informative speeches, to interpretations of drama, prose, and poetry, to speeches for special occasions. They present in school classrooms, assemblies, and in competitions around the country. Some performances require the use of published literature.

Many students cannot afford to purchase their own scripts or anthologies of stories and poetry.

These supplies will give students high quality source material, and allow them to interpret and bring them to life. The full range of speech areas need to be fully accessible, so all students can make their voices heard.
