My Students

I am a high school mathematics teacher at a public high school in Chicago. I am looking to bring an interactive world of learning to my mathematics classroom. My students are some of the hardest working kids you'll meet in this day and age, even at a disadvantage to others in the Chicago land area. I want to change the culture of mathematics in schools and bring to light a generation of learners who are inquisitive and problem solvers.

I want to foster a learning environment where students have an ample amount of resources for them to thrive in today's society.

We live in a technology driven world, yet my students have very little access to resources in the classroom. We lack even the basic necessities that students need in order to be successful in the classroom. The next generation of learners, are who are going to lead us in the years to come. We need to ensure that these students have the tools to be lifelong learners. Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

My Project

As a former high school golfer, I know how essential it is to have the proper equipment to play. This fall will be my second year as the varsity girl's golf coach. Most of my golfers do not have their own golf clubs and by giving us the Top Flite Womens 2018 Complete Set, it will give them the essentials to learn and further their game. Trying to compete with the best high school teams in Chicago is a challenge, especially when we have very little funding to provide them with the equipment to compete. Please help my girls learn to love a game that they can play for the rest of their lives.
