My Students

The students at my middle school depend on teachers and their resources to teach them about the world around them. We not only teach them but push them to their very limits of academia. A vast majority of my students have never been outside the state, let alone truly grasp the concepts of the solar system, underneath the earth or sounds and lights in the universe. My students are hardworking, dedicated, and the most inquisitive students in the district. We challenge each other on ideas and theories of the world, and they embrace learning with the utmost passion and questioning. My students respect each other and our community in the classroom and it shows in their work.

My Project

I have the pleasure of serving as a Coach on a couple of our middle school athletic teams. This year I have soccer and softball. We need a bench for our student athletes to use during practices and during our games. It will allow our athletes to stay comfortable and focused during our games and during our practices. It will look great on our fields and encourage our student athletes. Having this bench will help our overall presentation and be a major athletic resource for our student athletes for years to come.
