My Students

Our school community contains a diverse array of students whose backgrounds and needs are as unique as the families and cultures that proudly support them. We are a school community that is extremely rich in pride, strong in support, and filled with a passion to succeed.

As our school community continues to grow, our classroom continues to be a place where a high degree of emphasis is placed on engaging, innovative, meaningful, and relevant learning.

Each year, I am so proud of the maturity that my students develop when it comes to their learning and personal growth as young adults. It is truly a passion of mine to offer the supplies, resources, and technology that will allow my students to gain the knowledge, as well as practice the skills, needed for success in their future college and career journeys.

I remain thankful for the support of citizen donors as well as corporate sponsors/foundations who continue to impact our classroom and transform it in inspiring ways!

My Project

Our English Language Arts class loves art and that is why in our classroom, ELA also stands for "Everyone Loves Art!" There are many opportunities for the integration of art in all subject areas and I hope to bring in the necessary art supplies that will provide my students with the opportunity and means to express themselves artistically.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time" (Thomas Merton).

With the colored pencils, markers, art pens, sketching pencils, marker pens, storage bins, etc., I hope to provide my students with an awesome array of art supplies that will allow them to tap into their inner artists. As we read our novels or work on our poetry, I plan on offering my students as many opportunities as possible to express themselves through art.

Thank you for your support!
