My Students

My students are passionate and motivated about all things education. Each and every one of my students who take Principles of Education and Training are introduced to various careers available within the Education and Training Career Cluster, as well as how to be successful within those careers. The students develop a graduation plan that leads to a specific career choice in the student's interest area whether that be teaching and training, professional support or paraprofessional support.

My students are future educators.

My Project

New York Times bestselling author and educator Ron Clark has multiple publications each with their own purpose. End of Molasses Classes challenges parents, teachers, and communities everywhere embrace a difference in the classroom and uplift, educate, and empower children. The Essential 55 are Clark's rules for discovering the successful student in every child. These books are REAL LIFE and much more than a textbook for the classroom.

My students will benefit from a class set of Clark's books.

I currently have my own personal copy of both books and spend time reading to the class.. which is so dated. I would love for my students to have the availability of a class set for our book studies, classroom purposeful talk and deep discussions. Having a class set would open so many doors within the classroom walls.
