My Students

Our students are respectful, compassionate, kind people. We live in a community of around 5,000 people in Northern Maine. We seek to see the best in others and are excited to offer our students the best opportunities we can in a small community. With so much injustice and inequality in the world, building empathetic and compassionate students who want to be involved in positive change in our community and beyond is greatly needed. Our students must have the opportunities to read and study about the struggles and challenges others face every day in order to fully appreciate the privileges and rights we enjoy today.

My Project

Creating visuals for our Social Justice Class is a great way to bring the life-changing issues alive to our school. Building a culture of acceptance and understanding begins with the stories and histories of those who have paved the way for us. Students often use markers, cardstock, and colored paper constantly to create important experiences of learning that spark creativity and interest.

Students will display their posters, brochures, essays, bulletin boards, and murals all around the school to promote a positive and safe atmosphere for all students.

The colored papers, markers, and cardstock will provide resources for all my students to complete their rigorous educational experiences such as social justice posters and Civil Rights bulletin boards without running around the school asking everyone for what they need to complete their ideas.

Every child deserves the right tools to finish the job well!
