My Students

My high school serves students who have lived in the United States for four years or less. There is a welcoming environment in the school with many support services, ranging from providing help in legal matters to meeting the medical needs of the students. The school allows the new immigrants to learn about the world around them while developing their English skills.

All the students of the school have diverse linguistic, cultural, and educational backgrounds.

The diversity of the school allows the students to develop respect for other cultures and values while finding out their place in this world and how they can bring change for better. Students also work collaboratively on projects designed to bring out the richness of their cultures, experiences, and personalities. Students have the opportunity to be placed in an internship in 11th grade that matches their career interests.

My Project

We can't wait to have a yoga and mindfulness club at the school, but first we need the supplies! We need yoga mats and yoga blocks for the yoga and mindfulness club which will offer these high school students the tools they need to get through school, and the rest of life, with ease, joy, and confidence!

I believe the tools they will learn in this club will be an indispensable part of their education.

They will learn self regulation techniques, how to breathe slowly and deeply, how to do tasks more mindfully, how to develop compassion for themselves and others , how to love and trust their bodies, and lots more.

The yoga mats are absolutely necessary so they're not sliding all over the floor, and the yoga blocks provide support for the less flexible students. Yoga accessories help everyone feel supported and included!
