My Students

My students are residents in a facility for troubled youth. Their lives have not been easy, and this school provides some stability for them. While getting help for their various problems, the students attend a regular school with qualified teachers.

For the first time, they attend school regularly, and all their needs are being met.

I have the privilege of working with some of the lower performing students. The best part of my job is seeing a student who comes to us with low reading skill graduate the program having progressed to nearly grade-level reading.

My Project

Many students in my school take an alternative route to graduation. Part of that is CTE training, and part is passing a graduation equivalency exam. Since they come to us below grade-level, they require some extra practice to pass the test.

My students need study guides to take back to their dorm rooms to prepare for the TASC test.

We have had a lot of success with our students getting their high school diploma through the testing pathway. We do not have enough study guides to allow all of our students to prepare for the test. The more they can study, the high chance they have at being successful.
