My Students

All of my students are in the ALC which is Alternative Learning Center. My students have simply made mistakes and had to be sent to our location. In the ALC our students learn quickly that we love and care for them. We work on teaching our kids self control and respect. Our students learn to respect authority and learn to deal with someone being over them. Our students learn to focus on their school work in order to achieve academic success.

We work to get our kids to understand, we have their best interest at heart and their success is our success.

We help our students to learn to deal with the freedoms of being in the normal student body. Through this process our students are able to learn that bad attitudes are not needed or helpful.

My Project

The AirPods, Headphones, a Floor Lamp, and desk calendars will help our class achieve our goals of academic success. Our class uses a great deal of technology and the items will help the technology be more effective.

Our students work hard to get on track and recover from the mistakes they make.

Giving them the needed tools encourages them to work hard. They know and understand they have the support of the staff.

In our class room we have many students working on over 25 different subjects. This means we have a lot of movement in our classroom, the earplugs and earphones will help our students not to be disturbed.
