My Students

I teach in a low-income rural school, and my students come from extremely diverse backgrounds. While this is sometimes challenging, it ultimately makes for a richer learning experience. I'd like to be able to provide a place for them to be creative and explore rather than just a place to bide their time.

I'd love to show them the learning experience that they so deeply deserve.

Part of that experience involves making my classroom a place they truly want to be. When we have engaging and exciting classrooms, school becomes a place of opportunity rather than an institution.

My Project

Global Studies is a new exploratory class at WCMS, and we're hoping to be fully collaborative - a true classroom of the future. We need your help to make this the best possible learning environment!

To serve 21st century students, we need a 21st century classroom!

Allowing the kids to have multiple seating options, freedom to roam a little bit, and the ability to sit or stand while working minimizes negative classroom behaviors and allows easy flow from station to station.

Thank you for donating to our classroom and our students! They deserve every opportunity in the world - and luckily, this is Global Studies! Help us show them the world.
