My Students

My students are a group of young adults who are simply brimming with potential. Unfortunately, they don't always see this when they look into the mirror. As students who come from primarily low-income households, they often don't see the opportunities out there for them. They feel trapped or limited by their own surroundings.

My students also struggle with finding motivation and taking advantage of all of the opportunities an education can provide.

As freshman, some have found it difficult to transition into high school and assume more responsibility for their learning and behavior. Despite this mindset, I am confident that this group of freshman can raise the standard of expectation for our entire school...they just need the positive reinforcement and motivation to make the right decisions!

My Project

Even the smallest rewards can go a long way in reinforcing positive behaviors in the classroom. My students absolutely love the immediate feedback and recognition that small rewards can provide... like a Jolly Rancher, a candy bar or Sunchips. It may not seem like a lot, but you'd be surprised at how excited students get when they receive a small token of acknowledgement that they are making a good decision, like staying on task, showing respect to their peers, and demonstrating engagement and focus in the lesson....all behaviors that will translate to out-of-school environments. As a vocational high school, it is essential that my students build these positive habits to take into the workforce with them.
