My Students

Our school proudly represents an international community that speaks many languages and represents many cultures. Our multicultural mosaic gives our school a global perspective with high expectations for academic success. The students are highly motivated; the families of these children expect a guarantee of success. To assure the children's academic success, it is vital to provide only the best resources possible.

Students can only achieve if they have the necessary tools to do so.

The families of our children have sacrificed much to be in this country and the children hope to fulfill their families' dreams for success. For that reason, we try to bring the best resources to our students in the hopes of realizing high expectations that will lay a foundation for future opportunities.

My Project

My students take great pride in their artwork and are always concerned that their work in progress stay safely stored until their next class. Having high volume classes means it is super important as a teacher to be exceptionally organized. Over the past few years I have re-used our colored folders (that correspond to each colored table in the classroom) in order to store student ongoing artworks in progress. The folders we currently have are ripped, soiled, and bent out of shape. Having fresh folders for the students to store their work in starting September will surely bring smiles to their faces.
