Chapel Hill 7th & 8th Grade Center
Urban, public middle school in Indianapolis, IN.
I am starting a Youth Speaks club and also using spoken word in my language arts classroom. Our theme is social justice.
Our mission is to give youth an opportunity to have a voice on issues that concern them and that they are concerned about. With the current culture in our country, my students feel powerless and are craving ways to have their voices heard. I want to be a facilitator that provides a vessel for students to learn to stand up and speak out to promote positive change.
