My Students

My scholars are hardworking and determined individuals. Despite the different obstacles that they face each day, they ALWAYS have a never give up attitude. They face challenges many of us could never imagine like being homeless or hungry, but you wouldn't be able to tell by their happy go lucky attitudes. I pride myself in being able to create a safe and welcoming environment for them. My new focus is to give them the education they deserve.

The great majority of my students come from economically disadvantaged homes.

I want my scholars to know that their present circumstances does not determine their final destiny. Outside of my classroom, they are not used to getting quality things, but they always graciously accept what they have. Although they accept what can not currently be changed in their home lives, I believe it is my job to make sure they have the very best at school.

My Project

This school year I am introducing flexible seating to my scholars. In order for flexible seating to be successful in my classroom it requires lots of organizational tools. My scholars deserve the best learning environment possible in order for them to achieve greatness. It shouldn't matter if they are homeless or coming from a low income family. They need these experiences. For this project I have chose a organizational cart for my students to organize all of their tools for success. The disco light will allow for a calming environment in the classroom during brain breaks and calm down time. I have also included laminator pouches to make labels.

My students deserve the same types of experiences as students from affluent parts of town.

I teach math and science and it requires lots of organization. Especially when we get into engineering my scholars need great organization in order for them to be successful in each aspect of the engineering process. I appreciate your support in building a successful learning environment for my scholars.
