  • "It's Really Not About Me, It Is About the Kids" : Chris Whelan: UCPS Middle School AIG Teacher of the Year

    Mr. Chris Whelan, Sixth Grade AIG Language Arts Teacher has been awarded UCPS Middle School AIG Teacher of the Year. We are so proud of Mr. Whelan for this accomplishment. We took a few moments to observe him teaching and learned more about him and his thoughts on teaching and his students. When congratulated in the classroom with the students applauding, Mr. Whelan's response was "It really isn't about me. It is about you guys." (The kids). During my brief visit in his classroom today, I was truly moved and touched as he talked to the students about a poem where a man felt that because he was "different" he was never going to be able to achieve his dreams or become successful.

    Could You Survive A Month In Poverty? On Wednesday, October 12th, Monroe Middle staff received the opportunity to take part in a Poverrty Simulation Training sponsored by United Way and Union County Public Schools Latino Outreach. Below is information included in their Poverty Simulation Flyer: In 2015, over 45 million Americans, including 11.9 million children and 6.5 million adults age 65 and above, lived in poverty. Many more had incomes above the poverty line but their incomes were still low enough to qualify them for programs like Food Stamps and Medicaid. United Way’s poverty simulation allows you to experience the everyday decisions that many families have to make, and the fears and frustrations they feel. To understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income household trying to survive from week to week, month to month. Scenarios are created based on real poverty statistics, cost of living, average rent, etc.
