My Students

The Governor's Village STEM Academy is a brand new school for students in pre-k through eighth grade. We are the largest PreK-8 school in the state of North Carolina and serve over 2,100 students from all over Charlotte.

This year, we are a school of "Innovative Trailblazers, Pioneers of the Impossible." Our student body is made up of diverse cultures, economic status and ability levels.

It is our goal to eliminate any "roadblocks" that are standing their way. We are affording students opportunities and making dreams into realities. These students are eager to learn and it has been my dream come true teaching them.

My Project

Our Title 1 school is beginning to explore the wonderful world of musical theater! The Governor's Village STEM Academy scholars are preparing to put on Lion King KIDS in March. The cast is set and rehearsals are underway. Our team is collaborating with the art teacher to create costumes, sets, and props.

With these wireless microphones, the actors will be set free!

They will be able to move freely around the stage and dance without the possibility of tripping over a microphone cord. Our students are so talented and deserve equipment to facilitate success. I can't wait to see how far they go!
