My Students

I work at a STEM magnet middle school in Indiana. This means that my students chose to come to our school to learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

My 7th and 8th graders come from all around the city to form a community where we focus on our core values of rigor, community, relationships, and drive.

My students come from diverse cultures and experiences, and some overcome significant obstacles to succeed at our school. In their two short years with us, they come in as young pre-teens and develop into teenagers prepared to flourish in high school!

My Project

Lighting makes a huge difference in a classroom! Through my 8 years of teaching, I've realized that the environment of a classroom sets the tone for the community that will be formed. I put a lot of work into creating a space that feels comfortable, inspiring, and productive and my students benefit!

When you add pieces like lamps and special lighting, students appreciate the space and value their time in the classroom.

I am requesting 3 floor lamps to place in the corners of the room. I am also requesting two sets of rope lighting to help feature special displays.
