My Students

I have students that have arrived enthusiastic and eager to learn. Many of my students are aware that they are struggling to grasp fundamental concepts and are begging for help. Others are completely unaware that they are not at grade level because they are at the same level as many of their peers.

These are wonderful, caring, compassionate, considerate and respectful students!

They want to help and be known in a positive light. Many overcome personal challenges to arrive at school on time every day, yet they still show up ready to learn.

My Project

My students come from families that are eager to help them make the right choices. The PowerMyLearning curriculum will help my students increase their empathy while providing parents and families the opportunity to become involved in their student's education. Many families are looking for ways to better support their student's learning in a positive fashion. Additionally, the history curriculum will bring history into the classroom in a more interactive medium. Today's students need learning opportunities that use technology in a manner that teaches them how to use tech appropriately while teaching that it is for more than fun and games.
