My Students

I teach a high number of economically disadvantaged students, which means I work at a Title I campus where many students are on free or reduced lunch. These students become my kids and I enjoy building relationships with them that will help them grow. My students enjoy coming to school and are amazing critical thinkers. They are kind, hardworking, and eager to please. My goal is to help them become global learners, and compassionate people that will pursue their passions. I do this by creating an environment in which they can thrive, ask questions, and solve real-world problems.

My Project

Our district wears mandatory ids and lanyards. Students have looked for a way to dress them up and make them their own. I would like to create one of a kind buttons they can only find in my classroom.

I believe they will enjoy 100 club buttons, student of the week, anime/Fortnite/gaming buttons and personal buttons with family pictures.

I aim to please. I would let students earn and purchase them with our school wide money.

In the end, I just want another way to reward them for all the hard work they put forth and create something cute/awesome students will be proud to wear.
