My Students

The students who attend my high school are amazing young human beings. Inner-city youth, low-income youth, and at-risk youth are some of the first to be blamed, shunned and lost in the shuffle of big city budgets. We must do better. I am now the lead teacher of a Senior Seminar class at HPHS, and I plan to work on this.

We need a laptop cart to help us keep our computers charged!

Help make these students independent! Help make them more prepared for the outside world after high school.

My Project

We need a laptop cart that will coincide with the laptops that we were just generously given. This cart is necessary so we don't have to leave our laptops out in the open - and they will be locked up properly. I added some inspirational quotes that will hang in our college and career readiness center, the students will really appreciate seeing the quotes on the walls. We are trying to build a culture here at HPHS - and this will definitely send us in the right direction. I am very happy to launch this project and it will benefit the children.
