My Students

I teach at a Title I, ethnically diverse school in southeast Louisiana. Our students are mostly from a low socio-economic background and receive free breakfast and lunch. Hurricane Katrina has greatly affected our community.

Regardless of their home lives and background, my students walk into the classroom every morning full of life and ready for a day of learning.

My goal for my students is that each and every one of them will be a productive member of our community. They have so much to offer, each one having a unique and special story to tell. I can see their eyes light up as they are learning and soaking up new information. I'm so blessed that I can play a small part in their journey to success.

My Project

My students love Flocabulary. It's a year-long subscription to a hip-hop educational service. They love learning about social studies using this online program. It is fun and interactive, not to mention, the songs are catchy. After a while, they actually memorize the lyrics which is great because they are learning without even realizing it.

My students also love to share what they know with each other; therefore I cannot imagine a better way to do that than with a Qball.

Qballs are microphones that are shaped like balls and can be thrown around the room. How fun is that? I have no doubt that my students will love them. With your help we will be singing and learning with our subscription to Flocabulary and our new Qballs.
