My name is Rachael and I am a fourth grade teacher. To supplement my income and downs extra time with my dear students, I participate in our funded 21st Century After School Program (a recently defunded program by our government) in our high poverty, rural school. Our students get the opportunity to choose their own clubs they can participate in (I teach hip hop club ☺). It gives the kids the change to get active in a new way, through dancing! We're worried our kids will lose this chance! Our program offers clubs like hip hop, cooking, STEM, cultural club, art club, robotics, etc., while also offering extra intervention for students in math and reading.
