My Students

Our school works toward having multiple pathways including engineering to help prepare students for a diverse number of careers and colleges. We use the acronym STAND: safety, togetherness, aspire, never give up and diversity to represent what our school stands for and how we work to inspire and motivate students to be better leaders in the classroom and in their community.

I have about 100 students in my classes, all interested in engineering and learning more about what it is and learning how to problem solve and improve the world around them.

I have an incredible group of students all motivated to succeed and all with some passion related to making the world a better place.

My Project

Students are designing and creating many different unique projects and learning the physics behind how things work together to re-create products and design newer more innovative products.

Students can calculate many different factors when exploring the physics of engineering around them.

These calculators will help make sure students have access to be able to compute such factors within the classroom and outside of the classroom.

Students will not feel limited if they didn't bring their own calculator from home. All of my students that enter my classroom will then be more engaged and the end result of projects will blossom in the classroom.
