• Welcome to Farmwell Station's Equity Webpage

    Chalke My name is Sandy Chalke, and this is my 18th year teaching. I have been selected from a pool of applicants to be the Equity Lead Teacher for Farmwell Station Middle School due to my diverse background in education. I am a National Board Certified Teacher with an undergraduate degree from UNC, School of Education, and a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction on Online Learning from GMU. 
    At FWS, we strive to:
    • Celebrate diversity and promote cultural awareness to ensure diverse students are represented in all levels of classes, activities, after school clubs, recognition programs, etc.
    • Create an educational climate of mutual respect between staff, students and parents, where students feel safe, comfortable, and have a sense of belonging and self worth.

    How can we promote cultural awareness?

    • Teachers are participating in professional development on Equity.
    • Students are learning about Equity issues through PBIS and the Positivity Project.
    Please feel free to reach out to me at Sandy.Chalke@lcps.org if you have any questions.
