My Students

We are a school located near Tampa Bay in Florida with a high poverty rate. We serve 2,200 students! We are a performing arts public charter school. I encourage, teach, and mentor my students through the arts.

Artsy people are unique and beautiful people to be near; they inspire others to do, think about, and become more than they already are.

I teach Earth and space science as well as an advanced critical thinking class to middle school students. My students are eclectic and artistic. They are preteens and teens full of ambition and emotions. They are sensitive, smart, sweet, and talented. Many are very humorous, and some are insecure and looking for a safe place to just be themselves.

Most of my students ride the bus for long periods of time just to get here. Our school serves students breakfast, lunch, and free (grant provided) dinner. Many students are at school from 8 am until long after 5 pm due to after-school activities provided to them. Our school is their home away from home.

My Project

We have a game wheel spinner in our classroom that I use to give out school supplies or other rewards. Students earn tickets for positive behaviors and sometimes high grades or improved grades. When a ticket is pulled from the ticket drum that student may spin the wheel for a prize provided he/she can figure out the odds of winning a prize. Of course students can work together and use a calculator when needed. It's really a lot of fun for kids and they improve upon their financial literacy. It's a fun way to build relationships with each other too.

I am requesting kinetic sand party favors, and sparkly lanyards.

Your support would be greatly appreciated.
