2. Student Reflections from 14 May 2009 Collaboration with the Teachers

As we worked together today, I felt confidence in having young people as future leaders in our community. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and experiences.

Jamon Cheatem

 

I got out of this that change is possible over time. And I hope to continue it. But we need to find students to take over when we are all gone.

Shyarra Sanders

 

I got out of this there is a sense of accomplishment. I also go to know that teachers really care about our education and are willing to hear us out.

Christina Jimenez

 

Today was a good day because we got to talk one on one with another student and teacher. We got to understand things from their point of view. We need to do a lot more meeting such as this one because we could get a log more things done. In the future I would like to still be involved.

Quinn Price

 

I got that teachers and students can work together to make learning easier and fun.

Evan Culpepper

 

I learned that if we just communicate and be willing to work together a lot can be accomplished. The process at first was slow but as we kept uniting the process developed.

RaShonda Jones

 

Today I learned that it is good for students and teachers to have a common ground. And that a culture affects the way you learn.

Shyarra Sanders

 

What I learned from this engagement was that if you really stick to what you put your mind to you can actually succeed in whatever you put your mind to.

2. Teacher Reflections from 14 May 2009 Collaboration with the Students 

It always amazes me the power that discussion brings.  As a Spanish teacher my focus in the classroom is making sure the students have the ability to communicate verbally and that includes having the confidence to speak out.  I have/had many of these students in class and I truly enjoyed working with them and watching them become leaders in the school.  I look forward to working with them in the future and hope that they continue to encourage their classmates to join them in their endeavors and work in a positive manner to better their educational experience here at Paul Harding High School!
