My Students

I couldn't be more excited to be joining my new school! What really drew me to this amazing school is the opportunity for all college bound scholars across the city to have the opportunity to join the our school. We are a magnet school and the opportunities for these college bound scholars is endless.

I am asking for any help you can give to these amazing college bound scholars.

Each day we talk about the importance of education and going to College. My college bound scholars are nothing short of amazing, and while they have a lot of challenges that could hold them back, they do not let them and as their teacher, I'm always challenging them to push forward and upward and onward.

My Project

Once these iPads are purchased, our students will have access to math and science materials that are at their level, math games that are at their level and many more interactive games and educational materials that will challenge them, all while they are learning.

Learning has changed, and many educators like myself are using game changing, hands on ways to get our college bound scholars excited about learning, all while challenging each student at their individual level.

These iPads help to change the way that the we are teaching, we are able to differentiate for each student, and that is amazing.
