My Students

My scholars are IB students at an urban inner-city school. Our curriculum is both diverse and rigorous. We strive to provide high-quality education to students from all walks of life. My classroom is project-based and scholars lead their own learning with guidance and examples from both me and other professionals in the field. Fulfilling goals set by them for them help my scholars learn the importance of independence and free thinking.

I am a new teacher to our school, but I've only heard good things.

These students have chosen to take on a challenging educational experience. The IB programs require students to be well rounded, inquisitive, organized, and critical thinkers. I am excited to help and encourage my students to work towards their goals.

My Project

Our students work incredibly hard during the season and in the off-season. Their sweat, tears and dedication is a build up for the goal of a win on the pitch.

These weights will help our students condition themselves for the upcoming season.

If we want our athletes to correctly represent our school on the field then we need to help them be best prepared for the games. The ability to condition is a much needed part of our athletes overall wellness in preparation for games.By having some new weights, it will help them build the confidence they need to compete against surrounding schools.
