My Students

I have the opportunity to work with great students every day. My students encounter several trials and tribulations. Some of the challenges my students face are financial. While separate students are faced growing up in foster care, or single-family homes. All in all, my students do not make excuses and show up on most days with an enthusiastic attitude and eagerness to work.

There is a motto, "give a man a fish he will eat for a day teach a man to fish he will eat for a lifetime." Please help me prepare my students to fish by providing us important vehicles to navigate these choppy waters while we fish.

My Project

Our students run an SBE (Student Based Enterprise). The process for this SBE was lengthy. My students started this nearly three years ago. Most of the students that started the process have graduated. Now we have received an excellent solvent printer. We require specialized paper for the printer. An SBE is a work environment set up to simulate real working conditions. School-based enterprises provide students with the opportunity to operate a small business, perform work for other companies, or complete tasks for volunteer or non-profit organizations. Students will gain more needed work experience utilizing this paper!
