My Students

My school district has over 15,000 students with large numbers of Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Asian, Filipino, and Polish students. There are 51 different languages spoken at home, and we are a suburban school district surrounded by urban school districts. We pride ourselves on offering many opportunities for our students so they can grow academically, athletically, emotionally, and socially.

The National Center for Education Statistics [2016] attributed living in poverty during early childhood, in part, to education-related deficiencies, inadequacies with physical and cognitive development, and disparities regarding access to healthcare.

These students are 5 times more likely to drop out and 13 times less likely to graduate high school on time. Over 50% of our students live in poverty, but adding a positive school-based relationship & additional external motivation can greatly increase the desire to achieve.

With over 3,500 students, we offer 25 varsity sports and 3 varsity academic competition teams, including our FIRST Robotics Team, The Mechanical Mustangs, of which I am the lead mentor. Part of the FIRST Mid-Atlantic District, we are competing in Destination Deep Space, sponsored by Boeing. Our 5 ft, 125 lb robot has won numerous engineering awards and qualified for the FIRST Championship.

My Project

We need a set of Helix Bicycle Racks [in yellow] to honor one of our colleagues Mr. M who has passed away last year. He was our AP biology teacher who would encourage our young people to save help save our planet by limiting fossil fuels and riding to school. He was an inspiration to our students.

This bicycle rack is going to be used for multiple purposes; besides being a safe place for our students to store their bicycles after they ride to school, we are going to use the unique shape of the helix to perform physics experiments on friction, velocity, and acceleration.

It is a custom yellow color to match all of the outdoor frames and gates that we have on campus.

Thank you for both helping us to honor his memory and for creating a safe space for our students belongings.
