My Students

In a society where technology and society is constantly changing it is imperative that our future leaders and citizens be equipped with the technology to keep up! Understanding how technology works and being able to utilize it effectively can be a teachers best friend! My students are curious and anxious to learn, but it is difficult to keep up with outdated technology. They are challenged every day in the hopes that they can meet and achieve the high goals they have set for themselves.

My Project

My students love to read but have limited access to high quality books in the classroom. We are always working towards finding new and improved ways to make our brains grow. These books can change their life in ways that are unfathomable!

Improving literacy is a crucial skill that my students need every single day!

These students have a thirst and drive for knowledge. Help me to help them by putting culturally relevant books that they can read in their hands. A little bit goes a long way. We are the best hope that children have. The future of our world are in classrooms like mine today!
