Home to over 1,800 students a year, the demographics of my school consist of students from different social, academic, economic, and ethnic backgrounds. Despite personal challenges, students come to school to learn and work hard towards earning their high school diploma.
Students are constantly seeking hands-on, engaging projects and challenges.
The ability to demonstrate knowledge in a creative, meaningful way is important for all students. My goal is to continue providing valuable experiences for my students that will further their academic potential as they move onto the next steps of their journey.
It is an understatement to say that this year is like no other in recent history. We began the school year virtually and just over halfway through students began to transition to hybrid learning. These students have worked hard to show that learning can happen anytime, anywhere.
As we close out the year many of my students will be graduating and moving on to their next adventure.
I want to celebrate the accomplishments of each underclassmen and upperclassmen in a way that is as unique and personal as them. I am requesting graduation cards, farewell cards, and postage to mail each student a handwritten card at the end of the year.
I first began this tradition last year after the sudden switch to distance learning. After realizing that I never had a proper "goodbye" with my students I wanted to ensure they knew how much they meant to our class and me. In an area where many students don't receive mail outside of cards from family I want to leave them with one last surprise and memory.
