My Students

My students are lively and energetic pre-adolescents. Middle school is an adventure where my students are acquiring academic skills and building good study habits in a backdrop of high drama in the South Bronx. They are learning to deal with friendships while learning about social studies, English Language Arts, science, math, art, and computer science.

They are transitioning from children to young adults.

Our school provides them with a safe space to learn and grow. We have guidance counselors that follow them from grades 6 through 12. We also have Margaret's Place, a program founded by Joe Torre, the former manager of the New York Yankees as a dedicated safe room in schools where students can go to talk or “hang out” in a comfortable environment that feels safe to them.

My Project

Living in debt is an unfortunate reality for some of my students' families. I would like to help them avoid the pitfalls of credit card debt by teaching them vital financial literacy skills.

All students should be introduced to budgeting basics at a young age so they can incorporate these money management strategies into their everyday lives.

I would like my students to acquire some of these critical skills through the use of budgeting apps and online stock market games using the Samsung Chromebooks. They will also be able to read, "Blockchain: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Smart Contracts, Cryptocurrencies and Everything about the Fintech Explained," and explore the rapidly developing world of cryptocurrency.
