My Students

I love the individuality and the diversity of my students. They are all unique in their own way, which adds another dimension to our classroom experience. They are special because of their uniqueness and each and every one of them are "my kids" upon entering the classroom. I genuinely love them.

I believe that through daily interactions with my students, whether in the classroom or attending their sporting events or activities after the school bell rings, helps to build a lasting relationship with them.

My students know that I love and care for them because they see me at events that are important to them!

My Project

These products (marker boards, calculators, tables, chairs, clocks, music stands, canopies, electrolysis unit, and batteries) will help all learners regardless of learning ability, preference, or teaching style. The marker boards will be used in several classrooms to encourage interactive learning. The calculators will be used in the Math Department, and along with clocks and batteries, for school-wide testing. The tables and chairs will be used in the Foreign Language Department to encourage hands-on projects to enhance their foreign language knowledge. The music stands will be used in our music department to provide a place for the students' music. The canopies will be used by all sports to help provide shade for our athletes. This is especially important for our track teams that often have to compete in hot and rainy weather. The electrolysis unit is for our science department to enhance their department's equipment in order to help encourage future interest and academic excellence in the sciences!
