My Students

Our school is a free, independent, public charter school that specializes in education for the urban youth designated most at-risk for dropping out of school. We are a Title I school with most of our families live near or below the poverty level. Most students come from female-headed households where the caregiver has not completed high school or attended college. Nearly 75% of students who enroll are 2 to 4 years below grade level in reading and math. When children start off disadvantaged, they are more likely to drop out of school because they fall so far behind.

Our school motto is "Accepting failure is NOT an option!" For 2017, our high school received an excellent score of 85.4% from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

We are preparing some of the city’s most disadvantaged children to have what every child deserves---a chance to achieve and successfully contribute to the community.

My classroom is full of engagement, authenticity, community, creativity, and enthusiasm. No matter the obstacles they face outside of school, my students strive to be the best they can be.

My Project

My job is to meet each student where they are at socially, emotionally, and academically. Students range all over the spectrum in my classroom, and each learns best in different ways. In order to reach my technology-driven students, I use various mediums to help students grow academically. The students spend the school year working on several problem based learning projects that require them to focus and complete research on Chromebooks. Having noise cancellation headphones will allow students to listen to podcasts, videos, and multimedia presentations.

Headphones allow students to focus on their learning, reduce the number of distractions, and make lessons more easily heard.

Not every student learns in the same way, and many students, who are used to using computers and watching television, learn better when using presentations in class or working individually with computer lessons. These headphones will allow me to meet my students' needs and help them be successful in a quiet learning environment.
