My Students

Our school strives to mold each student into a knowledgeable, motivating scholar. We believe that each student brings talents, strengths, and abilities into the classroom and providing exposure to new experiences and information allows them to blossom. My students strive for excellence in academics, sports and community service. The class culture is one of caring and camaraderie.

I teach 138 inquisitive students who try their best to investigate and learn about the world around them.

These scholars include 4 students who are deaf and of hearing, 4 English language learners, and 45 who have support needs. Each student has a can-do attitude and positively contributes to our classroom community.

My Project

Most of my students have not left the city in which we live. They have not experienced snow, towering trees, mountains, or even four seasons; therefore, it is hard for them to understand the different ecosystems on planet Earth.

Google Expeditions will allow them to visit these places virtually.

Using VR goggles with phones and 360 degree cameras, students can observe the different flora and fauna. They can ask questions about the ecosystem and then collect qualitative data. Their investigation will deepen their understanding of these different systems.

The Google Expedition kit will provide not only all the virtual reality goggles, phone, and cameras, but also the charging carts and router. The students will be able to participate without worrying about battery life and connectivity.

Our classroom was affected by Hurricane Harvey.
