My Students

The majority of my students are at risk learners and students with special needs; many of whom are living below the poverty line. Students are primarily latino, some of whom are English Language Learners. They are high school students in an early college setting preparing themselves to enter the world as young adults. Our school is a safe zone, full of caring individuals who treat our student body as family. Our school is a consortium school, empowering students through multiple modes of learning and exploration.

Students at our school are natural born leaders and out-of-the box thinkers.

They would greatly benefit from the support and kind donations from people like you!

My Project

This year we created a student government at our school to emphasize student voice and allow individual children to advocate for themselves. We have titled the group of students the House of Representatives, and they have been empowered to make change in their school community and New York City at large. After a leadership retreat last month, students encouraged us to create t-shirts that would allow them to be identified amongst the community.

Purchasing t-shirts through Custom Ink will allow us to support students as they work with the school community.

This leadership gear will also build camaraderie within the student government group.
