My Students

Amazing! That is the word I would use to describe my students. They are curious about the world they live in and the world they don't. My students are like sponges; they soak up all the information/resources they are exposed to. I feel it is my responsibility to expose them to as much as possible. "You can't be it or dream it if you haven't seen it." My students come from high crime, low socio-economical areas. They are resilient. They leave all of the adult baggage they are exposed to at the door.

Our classroom is a place of peace, learning, exploration, ​and family.

I want to give my students the tools they need and deserve to reach their full potential. I want to prepare them to become and do what they were born to do.

It takes a village to raise a child. I am reaching out to my village to help support my endeavor.

Thank you in advance!

My Project

Picture a classroom that has "fun learning" stations that consist of Math games and STEM projects and the students gets to rotate to each station with their team. I want to give my first graders that 21st-century learning environment. My students are naturally curious and love to play.

First Graders it is only natural for them to learn by exploration, problem-solving​ and collaboration.

With the Math and STEM stations readily available to them, they will have the opportunity to reinforce, and develop important skills needed for mastery. The school environment changes to a place of exploration and fun. It makes children love learning and coming to school.
