My Students

I have the pleasure and passion to teach every wide-eyed, bushy tailed, freshman High School Healthy Living!

For many of my student's, my class is their first exposure to conversations within an educational environment about self-esteem, self care, healthy relationships, consent, sexuality, reproductive and sexual health, addiction/substance abuse, and nutrition(to name a few).

In order to to make the class relatable and engaging to all students I create lessons that are collaborative, culturally relevant, and focused on the needs of the student's learning and curiosity.

I am constantly in awe of their resilience and commitment to learning despite the obstacles that they face as predominantly first generation and low income students. I feel immense devotion to the health and well-being for all of them and while they are in a school system that does not always provide resources or monetary support, I try to create a classroom environment that will always nurture and make them feel held.

My Project

I am requesting a white board in my classroom to support my lessons and make my student's learning environment more accessible.

Currently, I only have one "white board" in my classroom which is made out of 3ft x 4ft shower board, was hung with unsafe and imbalanced fasteners and is covered in stains.

Because I only have one board, I am very limited in terms of what I can write on it while I am teaching as well as what I can leave on the board for the students to reference throughout the days lesson or unit. In addition to the limited use throughout the lesson, the board is located in the corner of my room which has made creating an accessible seating chart(where every student can see it) a challenge.

I have put in a request with my school and district for a larger and newer white board 4 times through a number of different avenues and each time my request is denied.I would love two 4ft H x 6ft W boards to cover the front of my classroom. This will give me enough room to post my daily agenda, the lesson objectives, a warm up question for the students, and use it throughout the period as I am teaching.
