My Students

My students are currently attending a Title I School. For those of you who do not know what a Title I school is -- A Title I School is a school with a high number or percentages of children from low-income families. Additionally, our school population has an extremely high amount of ELLs (English Language Learners), which means they are trying to learn the English Language while also learning to read and write to the expectations of the Colorado Standards set for ALL high school students across the state, regardless of background.

Due to low-income backgrounds, most of our students have not been exposed to many of the experiences that are often taken for granted by the general population.

Students spend most of their time learning reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and life skills. Each day is a challenge and I do my best to meet the needs of my students. School is their happy place where they grow and learn while staying safe, comfortable, healthy, and understood. Opportunities like this can change their lives and their outlook forever!

My students need paper, pencils, pencil sharpeners, dry erase markers and dry erase pockets in order to be successful in our classroom.
