My Students

I have the amazing opportunity to work with a diverse group of young people and their families. Of our 2,589 students, 51% identify as Black/African-American, 37% Hispanic/Latino, 9% White/Caucasian, 4% Multi-racial/Multi-ethnic, and .5% as Asian. In addition, a number of our students experience extreme levels of poverty, with 63% qualifying for free meals and another 3.4% for reduced meals.

The highly transient nature of our urban district combined with high numbers of students experiencing homelessness and poverty, leads to a constant demand to meet students’ basic human needs.

As a school social worker, I hear about and see the many different barriers our students face on a daily basis. With your help, I can reduce students' barriers to education by providing them with basic supports.

Our students are amazing, more than deserving, and in need of a little help to ensure their ability to reach such great heights! Please help me in clearing their path to success.

My Project

Our school district utilizes a student uniform. Though the uniform guidelines are not overly restrictive, a number of our families are unable to provide the required items for their students. Given that uniforms are required, students may be penalized for being out of uniform or fail to receive Positive Behavior rewards. These small consequences have lead students to skip certain classes or not attend school.

These uniforms shirts can help students feel additional pride in themselves, reduce one barrier to their education, and encourage student engagement through access to our Positive Behavior program.

Though it might seem small, having access to a uniform shirt is a big deal for our students, which truly has a positive ripple effect.
