My Students

The students at our school are a diverse representation of the many cultures that call New York City home. They represent a rainbow of countries, ethnicities, economic backgrounds, religions, interests, talents, and academic levels. In spite of, and perhaps because of this diversity, they are bound by a school spirit that makes our community feel like a huge, multi-faceted family, where students are guided lovingly and closely from sixth through twelfth grades by a faculty as diverse as the student population.

They thrive academically and socially.

They take AP courses, go on college visits, and travel to foreign countries. They speak Japanese, Spanish, and French, among many other languages and dialects.

They play volleyball, football, basketball, lacrosse, and softball. They sing in the vocal ensemble, they dance in the studio and on the stage, they perform in plays and in poetry slams. They are accepted into Ivy League schools and community colleges. They become stronger, more confident, and more successful versions of themselves.

My Project

Boards have been great tools for communicating information in classrooms for many generations, but chalkboards should be extinct. Replacing old chalkboards in classrooms may not be a priority, but it sure would be nice to be able to write on the board without being covered in chalk dust.

White boards, or dry-erase boards, get messages across with more clarity and less mess than any green or black board ever has.

These particular boards are mobile, since they are magnetic. Not only could I use them to present elements of the lesson on parts of a sentence, students could use them to present written answers on the board in trivia games, or to show their thinking side-by-side at the board.
