My Students

As a teacher in an urban public school I am often tasked with making learning come alive with next to no budget. I thrive on creating an authentic and exciting learning environment for my students. My goal is for our classroom to be a place where they can discover the world around them and build their leadership skills!

I'm privileged to teach a group of brilliant young leaders this year.

We are spending the year looking at the world around us through the eyes of leaders throughout history. My kids are learning to question and think deeply about their role in the world and how they will make their mark. Our motto is, "Lead on Leaders!" That is what we intend to do!

My Project

I am always looking for ways to help my students learn thinking about the whole child. Some of the challenges my students face revolve around self regulation skills.

The goal of the items in this project is to help further transform our learning environment to make it more conducive for the students to learn.

The light filters will help to change the mood and reduce glare of our classroom florescent lights. The timers will be used in our calm down area for students to help build self regulation and encourage students to rejoin the class when they are ready. The Noise machine is to help filter some of the excess sound that takes place in and around our school building. The goal is for students to feel relaxed and at home in our space.
