My Students

My students are so full of spirit and excitement about learning. We have students from a wide range of social and economic backgrounds, but one thing that keeps them bound together is the thirst for knowledge.

I know that our kids are going to change the world!

With every lesson I teach each day, I hold this idea above all others. We need to find ways to inspire and encourage my students in even the hardest situations by exposing them to new ideas and concepts that will help shape and teach them the skills and information they will need as they grow.

My Project

Our students need to feel safe and happy in order to fully be able to focus on the learning that will take place. Our kids need new flexible seating options including lap desks and comfortable cushions to move around the room and work. We also need better lighting and more storage to make our learning flow and to have ease of use.

Our students deserve a safe and inviting learning environment to learn.

I am excited to be able to help them meet their potential and fulfill their needs. Our students are so excited to see any changes and improvements and they work hard to keep materials and supplies in top shape for everyone to enjoy and use for a long time.
