My Students

Serving a large population of low-income students, we are constantly fighting an uphill battle. In order to prepare students for high school and beyond, we must give them all the tools they need in the twelve short years we have with them. In order to do this, we must have the necessary tools. I am blessed with a resilient group of individuals and I want to give them every opportunity I can to succeed in life.

We are serving a rural community where jobs are limited.

Most parents must travel for work which also limits their time to devote to their children, which is why it is ever so important to focus on helping these students become well-rounded individuals when they leave this building.

My Project

The best kind of learning happens when students have cross-curricular hands-on experiences. This allows students to find an area they are passionate about and use that love to help them excel. In Growing Our Education, we are going to begin a year-long project that addresses several different areas of learning including personal finance and starting a business, science, and agriculture, and food handling to name a few.

Growing Our Education will allow students to start a project and see it through to the end.

They will have to make a business plan to determine the direction of their business. They will have to tend to the plants daily to ensure their success. Then they will be required to learn proper food handling techniques and new recipes to use their bounty in.

My hope is that the students will be excited to see how different areas of education are integrated into the real world. To see the preparation, planning, and hard work that goes into building a business as well as the rewards that can come from the hard work!
