My Students

My students are exceptional scholars. They come from various low socioeconomic backgrounds, but despite challenges they strive to achieve. These young people work hard to achieve high standards. What I love about my students is their willingness to thrive in all circumstances. They embrace new skills with determination to master them. They are loving and full of potential. My goal is to inspire them to become all that they want to be. That includes giving them the best education that they can obtain.

My Project

New headphones will make a difference in how my students are able to utilize the laptops more efficiently. Many of my students don’t have headphones which are needed in order to do interventions on the laptops. A wireless microphone will help my students to learn the basics in public speaking. Many of my students are bashful and I believe the microphone will give them the confidence they need in order to speak in front of a group. The microphone will help them to know that they are the center of attention and that speaking Ioudly and clearly is what will hold an audience’s attention.
