My Students

The students at my school are great. They work hard and are always exciting about learning. We are a very large middle school, close to 1300 students in total.

Our school serves a wide range of students and we have some amazing electives at our school!

Students can take Video Production, Art, Spanish, Computer Science, Computer Technology, and Photoshop among others. Our school has been a schools to watch school more than once. It's definitely a great place to teach.

My Project

I'm requesting many different classroom materials to help enrich my classroom. My Career Exploration students need the resume paper in order to have a printed copy of their resume. They also need the pastel paper for scoring rubrics. These students will be using the filler paper for various writing assignments. The pencil sharpeners will be used quite often in this class.

And I'm very excited about getting the Hidden Figures DVD.

My Career Exploration class will be watching this movie to learn more about women who work in STEM fields. My Computer Science students will be excited about getting the extra Lego Mindstorm supplies. We are in need of some extra pieces for our robotics projects. This will help us tremendously.

All of my classes will be using the headphones whenever someone needs some quiet work time or an online simulation with sound is being used. And the tray will be used for all classes to turn in their assignments. The hand sanitizer and wipes will help to keep the classroom neat and germ free. Also, all of my students can earn a piece of candy for hard work and effort in class.

I will be using the packing tape and mailers to mail out ink cartridge recycling. This helps raise money for classroom supplies.
