My Students

"You're off to Great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so . . . Get on your way!" -- Dr. Seuss

Living by the words of Dr. Seuss, my students are uniquely special and amazing.

They represent a small population within an urban setting that excels in math and language arts. These inner-city students have amazing brains when it comes to complex problem-solving. They allow no problem to go unsolved.

Regardless of their economic challenges and limited resources, our students always strive for excellence.

My Project

As a Cleveland Public School educator, we service a large number of students who have moved to this area to live with family members after being displaced by Hurricane Maria. An iPad Pro will allow my students to participate in SOLE (self-organized learning environment) research projects. The students select the topics they want to learn more about. Then the students collaborate with one another to find the answers to their unknown questions. Finally, the students share their knowledge with their peers.

A fresh new start is what our students desire and deserve.

Unfortunately, these students were forced to leave the only home they had known to relocate to a foreign land. While many do not speak much English, they find a way to connect with their homeland through SOLE. It breaks my heart to see the sadness on my students' faces while grasping the hope of a bright future.

Your generous donation will allow these students to collaborate with other students to learn more about the world around them.
