There's a room in a few of our Rochester Public Schools that's genius. A Resource Room. And Rochester Alternative Learning Center (RALC) needs some help stocking it! This is

I reached out to Beth Martinez, the new Community Site Facilitator from RALC in Rochester, Minnesota, to find out more about the room and why it's there. If you know about their awesomeness already, just scroll down for the list of needs.

Our resource room is a support we provide with the help of our community. We have items like hygiene products, kitchen pans, food, clothing, and cleaning supplies. This room is open to the students and their families and it's a way to provide some basic needs.

What's the one thing you wish everyone knew about RALC?

One thing I would like everyone to know about ALC is that we have the best students and staff. We work together to incorporate students/family interests into our everyday learning and it makes everyday super fun.

My job consists of working with current community partners as well as creating new ones.(All of our partnerships are created with our students in mind and their needs). I work with our student's families as well. Making sure we have good communication with them and making sure their voices are being heard. We want our families to know that they are extremely valuable and they are welcomed anytime.

My job is basically making sure we (RALC) provide a space where students and their families can be fully supported. We strive to provide support that will help them achieve educational goals as well as personal goals.
