My Students

Our students come from many diverse backgrounds, with 100% of our students receiving free lunch. They attend an inner-city school where more than half of the students commute for the education we provide. We have healthy foods and a garden, and we speak seven different languages at home. Our campus is inclusive, where all able bodied students learn differentiated, grade level curriculum.

Our school is a bright, happy place where a university education is our goal!

Students learn in classrooms where experience solidifies the curriculum! Our walls are covered in student innovation and creativity! Students are always encouraged to voice their opinions!

My Project

Students know when their work is displayed in the hallway, classroom, and during gallery walks, they need to do their best. I love assigning work to be perfected and published. Projects that prepare students for the rigor in middle school, high school, and university!

The colorful, innovative displays that attract parents and younger students, are designed to encourage attention and pride.

Having the bright colored fadeless paper and borders, calls attention to the student's hard work. Having the fine pens, acrylic paints, and construction paper we need to execute this art is expensive for public school budgets.
