My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district and in an alternative special education learning center, I see my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. To combat the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things positive and exciting for my school's energetic, eager, and enthusiastic learners.

Every day, my goal is to be sure the students do not feel the challenges that they face at home while they are at school.

This group of students inspire me to not only be the best educator possible but to be the best person possible. Our students are always willing to help each other and try their hardest to be good students. Every day is more exciting than the next as I watch my students grow as learners and as future contributing citizens.

My Project

My students work hard to produce the best work that they are each individually capable of producing. As their teacher, I do my best to show their work in the most attractive ways possible in order for them to be even more proud of their hard work. This does often include colored ink and colored paper for display.

I want to make my students always feel proud of their efforts.

My students also struggle with social-emotional disabilities, which often leads them to have busy hands and bodies. I like to occupy this energy with crafts and activities to help develop fine motor skills.
