My Students

I have the privilege of working with some of the most AMAZING students in the heart of Houston, TX. This year I am excited to follow my class from 7th grade, to 8th grade and Algebra 1! My students attend an IB school known for it’s diversity and academic achievements. Any visitor to my classroom would notice that my students are inquirers. This group of kids blows me away with their creative problem solving skills and kindness toward each other.

My Project

Learning in a 92 year old building with gulf coast heat and humidity is tough. It’s become the perfect environment for mold growth. Being exposed to indoor mold is making us sick and unable to learn to our fullest potential! We do have a dehumidifier, but nothing for air purification. We need your help!

Along with the air purifier, we’re also asking for a few school supplies for our classroom.

With the use of clipboards we can be a lot more flexible with our seating. Middle schoolers don’t always work best sitting at a desk!

Dry erase markers are for both student calculations and my own use on the main white board.

The two staplers would be for teacher use and for my student supplies station.

Thank you so much for reading about our needs! Your help is greatly appreciated!
