My Students

My students come from all over the Las Vegas Valley. They are a diverse population of students working at their level of understanding in a rigorous environment. Our school mission is to bring forth future leaders through a fusion of classical education and STEM instruction in an environment that promotes liberty and virtue.

Our school vision is Knowledge, Freedom, Leadership.

We are working hard in and out of our classrooms to provide everything our students need to be successful.

My students carry many things in their backpacks including school supplies, their lunches, and personal belongings. They also carry the weight of responsibility, as they strive to represent their family in the most positive way through their behavior and achievement. My students are AMAZING!

My Project

My students love to read! Our school does not have a library, and each teacher tries to provide books for our students to read. Many of my students do not have books to read at home, which makes daily reading homework a challenge. By providing them with a wide variety of quality books, I am helping them develop a love of reading. Reading is the key to education! You need to read to fully understand all subjects in school. I want to teach my students to love learning and to read something each and every day! They need great books in our classroom.
