My Students

My students come from a suburban neighborhood. The poverty within the school community allows 100% of our students to receive free breakfast and lunch. Our kiddos are culturally and racially diverse and come from many different, unique walks.

We have the most authentic, caring, inquisitive and funny students at our school.

I love being able to teach and learn from these wonderful open minds and open hearts! They are beautiful young people, and it is my lifelong intention as a person and educator to give them the very best I am able.

My Project

At my school, we have a focus on leaders who used their power to make change in the world. Students study these leaders, make art and book reports and inspire to follow in the steps of positive change.

These books will be used by teachers and students to continue this study into ordinary people who have changed the world and to inspire our students that they can be the change they wish to see as well.

These books will be kept together for students and teachers to use in the continuation of studying and learning about people who used their voice and hands to make positive changes for us all. Our students will continue to grow and be empowered as we learn more about leaders.
