My Students

My students are in a small, tight-knit school district and are in the performing arts of Speech and Drama as well as Special Education.

They work hard and well together to accomplish big shows and activities!

It keeps me in the same environment I grew up in, where you know everyone and work well with whomever is there.

These students accomplish great things together performing! We also work together to work toward special education goals.

Small communities are great to work with and the support is abundant but can be overwhelming with so many needs in a small area.

My Project

This lectern will lend to the love of speaking in my room for students to use in class, as well as be used for our performing arts banquet and other things in my teaching and coaching.

Speech team will have use of this for individual events, use for musicals and plays, as well as the ability to strengthen our ability in speaking everywhere it is used.

Please look for the abilities to transpire and make our non speaking (all texting) students the ability to learn and move into becoming better speakers and leaders for tomorrow and beyond with this addition.
