My Students

As a teacher in a high poverty school district, I see my students face many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Gangs roam the neighborhood recruiting them at a very young age. Despite the challenges they have, many students are eager to be the exception and strive for excellence. I aim to provide my students with meaningful yet creative learning experiences. Our school's motto is to prepare leaders in mind, body, and character for success in college, career, and a life of service within the global community through an education that values honor, courage, and commitment.

My Project

My students are in need of an Apple Pencil to electronically design and sketch their STEM projects. My students are eager to learn with the use of new innovative technologies such as an Apple pencil. Times have changed, and in today's technological times, paper is becoming obsolete and digital writing is becoming more prevalent.

Students now need to experience innovative ways that will help them compete in today's digital era.

My students will use the Apple pencils to render digital drawings for mathematical calculations in our STEM class. These pencils will aid their understanding of drawing to scale a mathematical concept that is important in our Engineering class.
