My Students

What if you could go back to middle school? What did you love about it? What do you wish you could change? Although methods of teachings are constantly evolving, unfortunately most classrooms still look the same way they did decades ago.

My students may come from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, but their potential for growth and learning is as unique as they are.

They are creative thinkers who use their innovative minds to help me make history come to life. Whether they are writing a rap song about life in Egypt or creating a board game about the Greek Empire, my classroom is a place where we think outside the box and work together. My job is to help create a classroom atmosphere that will inspire them to grow. That's where you come in.

My Project

I believe the best classrooms don't have walls. Whether it's going on field trips to learn through experience or heading out to our school garden to care for our veggies- I believe fresh air and some time outdoors is as good for learning as it is for the soul.

Because it is not feasible for us to have class outdoors everyday, this project is meant to help bring the outdoors in!

By having plants and greenery in our classroom, we will literally bring life to our space and some much needed air purifying elements to a classroom that sees 150 students every day! But also, the use of a classroom diffuser with essential oils can help calm students right before a test or perk them up when a collaborating on a team assignment. As a teacher, I set the tone, but my goal is to have a classroom that makes my students want to learn.
