My Students

I leave my house every morning eager to come to work. Not just because I love my job, but I get so much enjoyment watching my students learn and grow. I enjoy coming to work every morning to see my students. It is a great pleasure to work with them and watch them grow.

The students at my Middle School are an amazing example what is a bright future.

They are kind, eager to learn, intelligent and are not afraid to take chances. Because of these traits, I try to find unique and interesting ways to challenge them. I find with every challenge, the students rise to the occasion and do tremendous work. It is because of their enthusiasm, I am driven as a teacher to constantly find new and alternative ways to connect with them and give them new challenges.

My Project

With the world ever changing, we are constantly learning new and exciting things. Our project Exploring The Coral Reef will be be a real life, hands on approach to education. Our students will learn the importance of today's reef. They will learn, what it takes to keep our corals alive in the reef. And they will learn all the valuable forms of life that live in the reef. This project will be one that encompasses many different aspects of education today.

As an educator I find projects that incorporate different subjects areas are the greatest ways for students to learn.

The power of success in projects encourages students to take chances. When students take chances, whether they succeed or fail, they still learn. But with success students are more likely to take more chances in life, bigger chances.

That is why I am asking for these specific lights. These lights provide the most accurate forms of light for coral growth and viewing. They are designed for reef keepers to maximize their success. There are other lights on the market that create coral growth, but AI Prime lights are the best and will be a great addition to our reef tanks.
