My Students

Our high school is an open enrollment public high school in New Orleans, Louisiana. Our students come from all corners and neighborhoods in the New Orleans area. Over 98% of our students are African-American and over 85% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. I also assist many students with special needs.

Most of my scientists are enrolled in advanced placement classes and working incredibly hard to earn college credits before they even set foot on their college campuses.

As their professor, I strive to mold them into college-ready, independent learners who will succeed in high school and beyond.

My Project

Gloves, calculators, and rulers are the foundation of countless labs, projects, and experiments. They are very important science materials for measuring, examining, and holding specimens, chemicals, and biological samples. Glue sticks are also incredibly helpful in creating interactive notebooks for class notes, lab notes, and scientific information. Combined, these tools will create a classroom and lab environment where learners can become self-sufficient and responsible academic scholars.

My advanced placement biology students are constantly striving to be the absolute best scientists and students possible.

With these essential tools and crucial resources, their personal and academic growth is possible! Furthermore, they will become independent learners, which will make them college and career ready!
