THE STORY:

Over Spring Break, ten students will travel to Williamson, West Virginia in the Appalachian Mountains, the poorest region of the United States. While there the students will learn firsthand what it means to live and survive in poverty. I am leading a class at DSST Green Valley Ranch on social action and how students can make a difference in their community and the world. 

We will be working with Sustainable Williamson in Central Appalachia to build local, sustainable community models for low-income communities in access to health and food systems.  

Food security is not only a timely issue in our nation, but as you are aware through your previous work with DSST GVR it is likely very personal for its students and the communities of Green Valley Ranch and Montbello that your practice services. Because 72% of my students fall below the national poverty line many of them also experience issues like the ones we will be facing this spring. When we return students will have seen poverty from a different perspective in a different place, they will also have tools and skills necessary to make a difference in their community.

I am proud to teach at DSST Green Valley Ranch High School: It is ranked the #1 high school in Denver every year while open, since 2012, based upon the School Performance Framework. Additionally, 100% of graduating seniors are accepted to a four year college or university of their choice. But, it is in opportunities like this, to travel and experience the world that will truly close the achievement gap between my students and their more well-off counterparts.
