My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching mathematics to sophomores and juniors at our high school in Newark, New Jersey. The most exciting part of my job is seeing my students growth throughout the year. They go from "I hate math!" to "This makes so much sense!" No matter what obstacles my students face on a daily, from being teenage parents, to raising siblings, or even being homeless they always come to class excited and eager to learn. However, they are deprived of some of their basic needs.

My students are warriors who never give up.

Despite being at a disadvantage my students always put their best foot forward. My students are compassionate and creative. Given the proper materials, the sky is the limit for the things they could accomplish.

My Project

My students are always ready to give 110%, however, there are life challenges that stand in the way of them being able to. I love when my students have binders because it helps them be much more organized. They can take papers out to turn them in and put it right back in after it is graded. Unfortunately, binders can get expensive.

My goal is to get every students to have the necessary materials to be successful this year.

With the proper school materials and classroom supplies they can get off to a great start. I promise you they will love you for it!
