My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects, and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and learn new things. I teach at a Title I school in Memphis where all students receive free breakfast, lunch, and basic school supplies.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!

We are a grades 9-12 Title I school with a large student population. The majority of our students receive free or reduced price lunch and have limited access to new and updated technology. When my students get their hands on the technology we do have, their imaginations and creativity soar!

My Project

My students are great high school students but I have noticed that they don't receive the proper nutritious meals that they need to function properly. The only meals they get during the day are what the school provides. I am in the process of creating a pantry with items and food that they can heat and eat in my classroom.

However, we do not have the proper place to store and warm foods for students.

We are in need of additional microwaves and small pantry size refrigerators that the students can use. A microwave and refrigerator will also help me teach my students the importance of basic nutrition and life skills need to be healthy, productive, and functional.
