My Students

I teach in a diverse area, and my hard-working students come to school every day ready to learn. I love my students! They are hard-working, eager learners. They come from diverse backgrounds including various ethnicities and diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. I use whole-brain teaching strategies in my classroom, so my students are constantly engaged in learning and sharing ideas with each other. I want my students to have all of the essentials they need to be able to love life every day.

My Project

We will use the Intruder Defense System in the event of an intruder in the building. This defense system will allow students to feel safe and secure while at school. This product will make a difference in my students' learning because they will no longer have to worry about an intruder being in our building. My students will not have to sit in a classroom that only has one exit and wonder if an intruder can make it through our door. The defense system will provide my students with the peace of mind of knowing that our room is secure while they are there.
