My Students

My students are a group of sweet young people who are just beginning to learn the amazing things they are capable of doing. They come from various backgrounds and most of them qualify for free or reduced lunch but they don't let anything hold them back.

There is nothing better than the sound of a student's "ah ha" moment.

My students are constantly amazing themselves with the challenging concepts they are working on this year. With their perseverance, they are on their way to incredible things!

My Project

My students need light filters and more books to add to our classroom library. I have one set of light filters and they are doing an incredible job of increasing concentration levels. The problem is I still have five more lights to go!

Adding to our library is one of my favorite things to do!

My goal is to surround my students with books and to have such a wide range of books that each student can find something special to read. These books in particular will finish our two series that have been incomplete.
