My Students

We are a Title I school where we offer free breakfast and lunch to all children. Our third grade​ scholars live in a high poverty neighborhood. Our community is located in an inner-city area. 85% of our students identify as African American, 5% Latino, 2% White, 1% Asian, and 9% multi-racial.

Labels and test scores do an injustice to our scholars and teachers.

My scholars and I refuse to accept failure. If you could see our children, you would understand that they are full of potential and that they are future leaders and innovators. Our students are perseverant, motivated, enthusiastic, and driven to succeed. We will bridge the poverty gap, and they will achieve!

My Project

This year, our school district provided every classroom in our building with new interactive Smartboards! This technology has improved instruction and student engagement, but we can do better!

The subscriptions to BrainPop Jr.

and Flocabulary will support our learning by providing highly engaging videos and lessons across the curriculum. BrainPop Jr. and Flocabulary include videos, lessons, and assessments for all subject areas. Flocabulary presents the material in a rap format which appeals to our scholars and helps them to remember important information through song. Song and music makes new learning exciting and fun and will promote a positive attitude towards the educational experience. Please help give our children these brain boosting methods of learning so that they may achieve success!
