My Students

I teach 7th grade Math & Science. My students are curious, creative and full of surprises. I typically learn as much from them as they do from me, if not more.

It brings me great joy to serve as an educator and mentor to these young thinkers.

My goal is to equip them with the tools necessary for a successful journey through the world of academia, as well as life.

My Project

You’ve heard the phrase ‘big things come in small packages’. It’s true. You’d be surprised at how much of a difference this seemingly ordinary item would make a in my everyday struggle as an educator.

A color printer would be a game changer for us!

We could make plenty use of it in the classroom daily. It also helps to organize our materials by color coding items.

Often times we are limited with the things we can do, as many games and activities require printed items. With your help, this becomes a yesterday's problem and tomorrow's solution.

Thank you.
