- Because of concerns in the community about inapprpriate role models and a lack of positive male role models in the inner city, I presented an original workshop for the boys only called "Real Men" which talked about character and integrity and how to act around a woman.

- Because of a racism issue which occured specifically in two classrooms during third quarter, I conducted a two period workhop on racism and respecting each other reguardless of gender, color or creed. I called the workshop "Running with the Races." The workshop eneded with a dialogue between the students. The results were very positive.
- Our school is owned by the Turkish community and I attended several events sponsored by the Turkish communities’ unity group “Harmony Foundation” which encourages tolerance of race and religion through dialogue and understanding.
