My Students

Most of the young men I teach are coming from a high-poverty, inner-city neighborhood. In our school, 100% of our students receive free and reduced lunch.

Every day, my students inspire me with the level of enthusiasm they have for learning and creating new things.

Most of my classroom need comes from a lack of technology and funding for hands-on learning experiences that our young men crave so much. Being in the 21st Century requires that we as teachers engage and teach students using technology, which in turn gives them a multitude of skills they will need in their future.

I work very hard to engage the needs of my students as far as movement, social and emotional development, college and career readiness, and expanding their knowledge of the world. I know the young men I teach can achieve a great deal and I am honored to be a part of their journey!

My Project

Many kids have a hard time completing work without getting antsy and needing to move around. Teaching in an all boys school, I see this very often in my classroom. Research shows that male students especially benefit from extra movement while they are learning. It indicates that this movement helps them not only get their work done but also helps them to retain the information being learned.

Having exercise balls and wobble cushions available to my students is a great and easy way to help my students achieve success and stay active while doing so!

I appreciate you reading my project. The young men I teach have incredible potential, and your support can help them to reach their goals. Thank you!
