Art Reflects the Society From Which It Emerges

As the discussion between my AP Lang students and me transpired, I witnessed their complete understanding of my overall objective for their learning. This brought me unspeakable joy, but it also illuminated significant heartbreak. My high school students clearly see what most adults leave unspoken.

Black History Month

Black History Month: When I taught Fifth Grade, my students studied the Civil War, which is my favorite topic in U.S. History.  They learned about the life of Frederick Douglass, from a slave to an abolitionist, and how heroic Harriet Tubman was by using the Underground Railroad to transport many slaves to freedom.  I remember sharing a picture book about Ruby Bridges with my classes so they could learn about her bravery as the first African-American child to desegregate an all-white school in New Orleans.  I have read books/poetry by Langston Hughes, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, and Angela Gorman, to name a few.

Live in the Moment This Year

Appreciate The Small Things. Whether it’s a teachable moment in class and a student sees success, or it’s on the soccer pitch for practice and your players are truly coming together and playing as a team, or at home while holding your little baby boy, rocking in the chair because he’s having a rough night sleeping. Be grateful for those times, no matter how big or small. Take a mental picture, and hold on to it for as long as you can.  

The Connection Between Gratitude and Struggle

As a school, we embrace the struggle. We want students to work hard, with the support of the teachers and parents, to unlock knowledge and new learning. We celebrate growth and achievement. We affirm and shout out the accomplishments of students, staff, and the community. SVA is a great place to make mistakes and try new things.

SkyView Celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month

As SkyView celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month, I reflect on my own heritage and how it has impacted my life and my work supporting the World Language Pillar at SkyView Academy. My Puerto Rican upbringing has influenced my joy for life, love of family, community, good food, and music. My personal experiences and time spent living and traveling throughout Central America have inspired me to share these rich cultures with others and instill an appreciation of Hispanic heritage in all of our students. 

Why Extra-Curriculars Are Essential For Teens

At SkyView, our staff encourages students to get involved and stresses the importance of creating the whole “high school experience”.  I invite you to do the same with your students… Together we can help students create an engaging and memorable experience in high school.
