I am currently teaching in a rural area. I teach 6th grade at my old middle school, it is a Title 1 school with low test scores and high levels of poverty (free breakfast and lunch for all). The students are very low academically and have little access to the world. I used to sit where my students now sit and my goal is to help them see the world and have access to it no matter how limited their resources are.
