My Students

My students are creative, free thinkers. They thrive in an environment that is supportive in nature. They are hard-working and industrious.

My students are always striving to be better and to do better than yesterday.

They are future leaders, doctors, engineers, mechanics, performers, chefs, and naval officers.

Whatever their goals they put their all in to ensure they can achieve them. They are dedicated and ready to put in the hard work necessary to be successful in anything they do.

My Project

We have plenty of mechanical pencils but we are dangerously close to running out of colored pencil lead. Last semester my students kept notebooks where they color coded their notes. This lead to much greater student outcomes.

Students learn best when the material is clearly laid out and color helps to emphasize the main points so they don't get lost looking at their notes.

Help my students to achieve in geometry with color coded note taking materials.

It may seem small but I have seen first hand the difference it makes. My students can often be seen referencing their notebooks. Their ability to take good notes as improved, better preparing them for college.
