My Students

Our school is new and located in the poorest congressional district in the country. We aim to develop internationally minded students that persevere through challenging situations and hold themselves accountable for their learning. We hold the belief that our students can achieve anything that they want.

All my students work extremely hard to achieve high grades.

By asking questions and helping each other, my students ensure that they have a thorough understanding of the material we are learning. My classroom is a space where students feel welcome and supported.

My Project

My students need basic essentials such as pencils, papers, and index cards in order to work effectively. Many of my students come to school with motivation to learn, but do not have a pencil. By providing my students with the supplies they need in the classroom, I will be able to set them up for success to learn.

Students need a warm and welcoming environment in order to learn.

Many of my students are visual learners and therefore having math posters around the room will assist them. While students are working they will be able to easily refer back to the posters.
