My Students

I teach at a Title I school in Los Angeles where one hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students start the day, every day, hopeful for what we will learn in class that day.

I ask them, "Why did you come to school today?" and they reply, "To change the world!" My students know that I believe in them and that with passion, determination, and a positive outlook on their potential, they can be anything they want to be.

All of my students qualify for complimentary school district provided meals before, during and after school. Despite so many challenges, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

What if we could teach our kids about the way a bank works by creating a bank inside our classroom and using Virtual Reality to become immersed inside the bank?

Using an Insta360 ONE X 360 Action camera, VR camera, we can create a bank where the money is stored and classroom bankers act as tellers!

Students can then immerse themselves - or their families from home - using Virtual Reality to reenact the scene. Teaching financial literacy to kids can be a project they will never forget! Students will use the play money as props at their VR bank.
