My Students

My scholars are IB students at an urban inner-city school. Our curriculum is both diverse and rigorous. We strive to provide high quality education to students from all walks of life.

My classroom is extremely project-based and scholars lead their own learning with guidance and examples from both me and other professionals in the field.

Fulfilling goals set by them for them help my scholars learn the importance of independence and free thinking. We strive to give our students all the best tools in order to help them succeed.

My Project

I am looking to fund these resources in order to create a calming, inspiring, and functional classroom for my students to learn and grow. I am looking to add these two books to my classroom library for students to borrow. I plan to employ the pens when writing on our over head camera when teaching so I can write clearly and colorfully. Finally the salt lamp will help me to facilitate a calming and safe atmosphere for my students. All of these items will allow for the best environment for everyone who comes into my classroom to thrive and feel comfortable to learn and grow.
