My Students

I am blessed to teach in Lumberton. My students already know what it is like to go without because we are a Title I school where 100% of our students receive free breakfast, lunch, and snacks. That gives you a really good idea of their daily environment.

When these students take what they learn in school each day home to share with their families everyone wins!

The students will develop a deeper understanding of what they learn, and it will give the gift of learning to their families as well.

My desire is for each of them to develop a hunger for learning so they not only set goals but achieve those goals as well.

I try to encourage students to always do their best, to be their best, and they can accomplish anything their heart desires. By opening up their minds we can show them there is a wonderful world out there to be a productive part of with a quality education.

With your help and encouragement, we can give them the education they need.

My Project

This PowerMyLearning Family Engagement Innovators Program will help make what students learn more impactful by allowing them to share what they learn with their families. As educators, we are always trying to involve the families of our students with their learning. Often times this is a daunting task. This program will not only help my students bridge the gap but our entire grade level! This program will give these families the gift of growing closer together while growing in knowledge as well. I believe our community can be greatly impacted by this program because we have many families who do not have the educational background to be able to assist their children with learning. By putting the student in the driving seat, so to speak, we enable them to have a greater impact on their families than they realize.
