My Students

I work in a very high needs school in the Bronx. We have limited learning tools and books. I am looking for ways to make learning more accessible to my students.

My goal is to bring the world of reading, math, social studies, science and writing to their fingertips.

In the world my students live in, stability is hard to find. I do my best to create a stable and secure learning environment for my students. Many students in my class don't have a stable home life. I provide this for them each day and make their lives as full as I can.

In my class, we practice growth mindset and think about how we can grow academically, socially and emotionally each day. Your contribution can help them, too!

My Project

I want the girls in my class to feel empowered and love learning. By teaching them about famous women in history, I hope to help them build their confidence. I want my students to know that they can be like Michelle Obama, Jane Goodall, and others who are so powerful. I want them to know that they too can make their place in history and change the world we live in today. I am so proud of the young scholars in my class and I know that they will all do great things in this world when they grow up.
