Inspiring students through self-directed humanitarian projects.

“Each year I encourage my students to develop and deliver their own humanitarian project—one that helps others by providing aid or resources not otherwise available to them. I shape their efforts by helping them understand what it means to support someone in a humanitarian project. I encourage them to develop the planning, communication, and presentation skills they need to engage their community in their project.

My students leave the classroom with a deeper, more empathetic understanding of the world around them.”
