My Students

Look who's getting ready for college......WE ARE!!!!

My students are incredible!

I have 25 motivated English Learner students eager to learn. My students come from a low socioeconomic background with limited resources available. We are a Title 1, Performance Improvement school with 100% free lunch program. Many parents work 2 jobs and are struggling to support the family. Though their environment may not be conducive to learning, they have an insatiable love of learning! I know that if we provide them with the right support, resources, and opportunities, they can experience success.

My Project

We instill in our children that college is NOT an option! They see banners in the auditorium of various colleges and universities that they will one day attend. We make it a point to have a college day every Friday. As an incentive, students who wear college attire get a "Gator" ticket which they collect and trade in for a school movie day, lunch with the principal or teacher, extra recess, and more! The problem is that many of my students can not afford a college tshirt. They see others getting rewarded for wearing college attire but are sad because they don't have one. I want every single one of my students to have and wear a college tshirt proudly.

College was never an option for me nor will it be for my students!

I know they are young, but if you instill in their minds that college is the way to a better future they will persevere and reach their dreams. I was one of these kids who had very little but went to UCLA on grants and scholarships. I know this bright class will follow in my footsteps and make you proud!!
