My Students

Every classroom is different, but in my eyes, I have the best! I love that we are all different and can bring so much diversity to the table. It keeps our discussions rich, like a big pot of gumbo!

I teach 25 students in each one of my three classes with a wide range of different cultural backgrounds.

As different as we all may be, when put together in one class to learn, we become one loving family. My kids deserve the absolute best from me, and that is what I am trying to provide.

My Project

We currently have privacy shields in our classroom that are falling apart as well as not enough for each child. Students do not feel comfortable taking tests due to the thought of other people looking at their test and possibly seeing their answers. This sometimes causes test anxiety for some students.

With new privacy shields, each student can feel comfortable taking test knowing that no one will be able to copy their answers.

There will be enough for each student and everyone can finally have a piece of mind while performing on their assessments. This will allow for students' grade to increase and have one less worry while testing.
