My Students

Greetings! Students at our school are resilient, hard-working learners. We are a unique community, as most of these children and families have experienced deep trauma due to neighborhood violence and lack of economic opportunity. Despite these challenges, our students come to school each day, ready and excited to learn.

We are a Kindergarten thru 4th-grade school, serving over 800 students!

Much of the population in this area of Philadelphia is Latino, and we offer dual language classes at our school for children to experience lessons in both Spanish and English. The children love to play outside at recess, use technology, and learn to read and write through creative activities in their classrooms.

Thank you so much for considering a donation to this project!

My Project

I will be implementing a new curriculum for my K-4 students to begin thinking about their future goals. I plan to create activities such as researching their interests, colleges, and universities that can accommodate their needs and the joys of experiencing a post-secondary degree. I also want students to be able to research career paths that are realistic for their abilities and interests. I believe that if students have goals, they will become more focused on their schoolwork, as they know all of their efforts will be for a vital purpose someday. They can become familiar with different industries through research projects and informational texts/technology. My students can use the tablets to engage in interactive exercises to explore the college and career possibilities best suited for them as individuals, and to practice balancing budgets and sticking to goals, in preparation for adult life!
