My Students

My students come from a broad range of backgrounds. Most are socioeconomically disadvantaged minority's who desire and deserve the same access to a high quality hands-on, real world education as everyone else. The biggest area on need is in the area of technology. My students are passionate about learning and love to share what they know through a variety of media outlets to the younger generations coming up through our feeder schools as well as to their peers in other local high schools.

My Project

The study of environmental science involves multiple facets and a wide variety of science disciplines. Our goal is to better understand the intricacies of our environment and the impact society is having on it. Through the use of an aerial drone, students will be given the opportunity to view the impact people are having on their environment from the air and couple that to what they are seeing on the ground. This unique perspective will enrich the learning process and give students hands on experience with the same tools that scientists in the field are using today thus better preparing them for college and careers in the future.
