My Students

My dedicated, academically hungry students come from all over the city to be part of our school that focuses on providing them with a rigorous curriculum. They devote truly almost all of their time to academics and extracurriculars and excel in both.

They work extremely hard to graduate with honors and to excel in every aspect of their high school careers.

They come to my school ready to become global citizens who can genuinely make a change in their communities and beyond. I am constantly amazed by what my students can do and want to give them the best learning environment and experiences I possibly can.

My Project

Our building is packed with students who truly work overtime to meet their academic goals. It also has NO WINDOWS THAT OPEN! I can't tell you how many times my students have walked into my room, ready to learn Spanish, but not ready to be in my room because of the air! My students need an air purifier for creating a healthy environment! Even teachers who share my room during my off period's comment on how dense and unpleasant the air is in my classroom. Last year we had a roof leak above my room (fixed) but the air is still dense, unpleasant, and seems to hoard germs and dust. Help!
