My Students

The students in my classroom are at our alternative high school for multiple reasons. Some of my students suffer from anxiety or depression. Others struggle with addiction. Some have experienced major trauma in their childhoods. Some are already raising children of their own.

All of the time, our students amaze me with their courage, their creativity, and their drive.

They don't give up when things get tough. They understand each other because they know they have all struggled to get where they are today. Because of that, and because of the environment of respect and support we have in this classroom, we have an amazing sense of community here.

My Project

For some of my students, school is their home away from home. Each day, they look forward to being with their friends and teachers who love and care about them. I work hard to make my classroom a comfortable place to learn and grow by getting to know each student, playing soft music while we work, and making the classroom aesthetically pleasing. As part of keeping our class vibe calming and comforting, I am looking on improving our lighting situation.

I would love these lamps for our classroom to help provide soft, warm lighting throughout the school year.

We have big windows, and some white string lights across the back of the room. Natural lighting is the best lighting, and students usually prefer to work with the windows open, and the lights off. However, on cloudy days we run into a problem: they have to choose between working under harsh fluorescent lights, or squinting through the darkness to see the letters on the page.

Thank you in advance for being a part of our classroom! The generosity from people on this website amazes me.
