My Students

My students are high schoolers in southwest Philadelphia.

My students are resilient, passionate, and are future change makers.

Every day, my students bring new perspectives and ways of thinking into our classroom, collaborating and investigating mathematical concepts and ideas regarding societal norms and values. My students push each other to achieve more, learn more, and be more accountable for their actions.

This year, many of my students will be preparing for their post-secondary plans by taking college entrance examinations and applying for positions in the workforce, taking their developed skills into the world outside my classroom.

My Project

My high school students often enter our learning community with trauma and having overcome many challenges. They are forced to adult quickly and early-on and are responsible for family members and for providing for their families.

Help me create a safe and relaxing after- school environment for my students to engage in.

Many students in my school have expressed interest in learning to bake. By creating a baking club, students are able to stay after school to bake goods, relax, and build healthy relationships with both teachers and peers. In order to minimize materials needed, we would only need irons to make cupcakes (due to lack of access to an oven), cupcake holders, and decorating tools. Baking supplies (flour, oil, eggs, butter, cake mixes, icing, etc.) will be purchased through the school's after- school funds.

Through the creation of a baking club, we are able to ensure that students have a safe, productive space to engage in after- school.
