My Students

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.-Malcolm X/

Hurricane Harvey directly impacted Texas including the South Texas Region where we live.

My students are amazing in every way possible. Hardworking, persistent, creative, and intelligent-they all are capable of attaining their goals and ambitions.

I have no doubt that my students will go on to do amazing things, and it is because of their potential that I want the best for them. Please help me prepare my students for tomorrow by preparing them today!

My Project

Students need to be prepared for jobs that might not even exist yet. Students need opportunities to practice their critical thinking skills as well as their literacy skills. Breakout EDU kits provide opportunities for students to use these skills in the classroom setting in a fun and innovative way.

Breakout EDU kits have the tools necessary to create an in-class escape room or scavenger hunt.

Breakout EDU kits help create an experience where students can apply real-world thinking skills with English class concepts. Students need the opportunity to branch out in unique ways to help students practice different skills.
