My Students

My students are the life blood of my school. They come from an urban district and bring various backgrounds. They are a diverse group of students that bring many cultures and languages that enrich the school and community. We have a wide range of interests and experiences.

The students in my district have as much potential as any other student.

My students have a wide variety of talents. Tapping into their talents and interest brings the learning to life for them. They are an incredible group of kids.

My Project

Currently I have a very old apple laptop. Unfortunately with today's constant on-line learning, it has exposed the deficiencies of my computer that can no longer update for newer programs and resources. I need greater access to all of these resources. A new apple laptop that is more suited for today's programs and resources will help me best serve my students. I have been an "apple" person and I am more comfortable in their universe. It will also allow me to transfer documents to the new computer work more smoothly.
