My Students

The students here are in an alternative environment for special education services or behavior intervention.

Students in our school are truly one of a kind!

Our school services around 200 students with all the necessary skills to graduate with utmost honors, but in a more non-traditional environment. We have over 80% of our population on free and reduced lunch.

We have a self-paced curriculum that allows students with special circumstances to graduate early. We strive to do whatever we can as a school, to make every student successful!

My Project

With your help, I can open the world of creative expression to students who have never been given the opportunity to express themselves in a positive manner. Our special education classroom is learning how to stay positive and driven to meet their goals.

Art supplies will improve our social emotional growth.

Simple things like glue, paper, new markers and colored pencils can foster great artwork. Students in our building have faced many adversities. I would love to give them a positive way to express their thoughts and feelings. My hope is to help students reflect on their past, while still moving forward and chasing their dreams!
