My Students

Our school is a charter school in the Buffalo area that serves one of the lowest-income areas in the nation. We have a goal of providing academic support and rigor while caring for the whole student. Many of our students have experienced trauma and societal hardships yet an incredible amount of success. Our school functions as an academically challenging, positive behavior, and trauma-informed school aiming to assist our students in helping them grow. Our students are the most resilient, hard-working and determined student population. Their perseverance, compassion, and desire to learn inspires our school staff daily. My goal is to create a safe, welcome, and warm environment where my students can continue to grow, learn, feel loved, and become productive members of our community.

My Project

At Westminster, our students work extremely hard both academically and behaviorally. Our students are rewarded for going above and beyond with points. Students can earn points from classroom teachers, support teachers, and administration. Points are rewarded for students who are focused, hard at work, and challenge themselves. Students who show extra acts of kindness and helpfulness also get points!

The students in our school love to be rewarded for their hard work.

With the points, students can shop at the School Store for prizes such as: puzzles, games, drawstring bags, and coloring books. By adding new prizes to the school store, students can continue to work hard and reward themselves for their hard work and exemplar behavior. Thank you for considering a donation to our classroom!
