My Students

We may be high poverty, but you could never tell by our test scores because of how hard our students work. Ours scores are competitive with scores around the state and many times our kids are a lot more successful.

They take all the "strikes" that may be against them and it is amazing to watch our kids turn them in to "home-runs" and "wins".

My job is to take their willingness to learn and teach them how to succeed and get a head start in competing in the 21st century.

My Project

My students have created music for their Latin restaurant projects each year, but this year, I want to give them an opportunity to create podcasts. Over the years, my students have created music for their restaurants in which it is sometimes difficult to figure out if it is stock music from a WeVideo or music that they create themselves in Soundtrap.

I also want to give them an opportunity to create podcasts to show what they are learning in our Geography, ELA, Science, and Math classes.

This will give our kids a chance to express themselves as well as an opportunity to record verbally what they have learned.
