Lenni, Mariela, and Rosemary: Women Empowering Women

We encourage families to vote. We educate them. We connect them to resources. We share info about candidates and how they are aligned with issues that matter the most to our community. We empower our families. This is one of the things I tell families: if you want to support me, this is something we do. This is civic engagement.

Student leaders are there to help and look out for them. That’s our reason. That’s our rule. We chose to be these leaders to be a voice for them if they need help or advice. That’s what we’re there for. We’ve gone through the experiences they might go through.

I think families’ needs are changing and evolving. That’s something that we’ll continue to address. How we assess where families are; how we think about families’ needs have been strengthened.

What KIPP is doing that’s unique is that we’re looking at what opportunities we’re providing to students to show SEL skills. It’s not really for us to teach kids these skills; the students already know them and use them. It’s about embedding the opportunities to cultivate them in everyday opportunities in our interactions with students, including our lesson plans.
