Rosa Parks Environmental Science Magnet

- Berkeley Unified School District, CA
Works Here: I am a proud after school teacher at Rosa Parks. This is a school community that works together to support students and families in every way possible. Each student is tracked carefully and provided math and reading intervention when needed. Equity and inclusion are a number one priority at Rosa. Gender neutral restrooms, a yearly PRIDE parade, and daily morning school gatherings where we all recite a pledge by Rosa Parks and practice our social/emotional "tool box" make this school an affirmative environment for all. The after school program called Kid's Village offers amazing enrichment classes-from the yoga class with Papa Da to slime making. Kids just don't want to leave at pick up time!

Sacramento New Technology High School
- Sacramento City Unified School District, CA
Freshman: The teachers at Sac New Technology High School are very helpful and have classes typically under thirty students. The teachers strive to make students successful with a very small learning environment of under or around 200 students. Many of the students are bilingual between Spanish and English and are willing to help each other in either language. Students work together at large group tables rather than desks, and are able to move freely around the classroom. Much of the work is project based, and students have four classes per semester. Students are able to work at their own pace -- more advanced students are able to take classes with other advanced students and upperclassmen, however there are no AP or Honors classes. The school has a few clubs, and students are allowed to create one of their own if supervision of a staff or faculty is present. Dances are held multiple times throughout the year in order to fundraise for the school, along with other fundraisers.
