My Students

Middle school can be tough. And middle school in the city is even tougher. My students are asked to navigate the muddy waters of adolescents while competing in the high stakes urban high school game. Most of my students come from minority, low income households and haven’t had access to all the advantages of their higher income peers. I want to help level the playing field.

My students inspire me with their creativity and their curiosity.

I want to make sure they have the materials and the experiences that will prepare them to be successful in high school and beyond.

My Project

My 8th grade classroom has an AMAZING library! The problem is, it is tedious and time consuming to check books in and out! We need a quality process to allow us to spend more time reading, and less time managing the check in/check out process. You can help! Now there's technology that helps us easily achieve that goal!

Students should spend as much time as possible reading for pleasure!

I have hundreds of excellent and exciting books just waiting to be read! Help us create an environment using this IntelliScanner Pro 250 - Business USB Barcode Scanner and label printer, where students can easily peruse our classroom library and find their next favorite book!
