My Students

My students are an amazing group of intelligent, hard-working, and kind leaders. They have dreams of going to college, and they deserve every opportunity we can give them.

Our school just recently became a STEAM Magnet, and we are working hard to strengthen the science, technology, engineering, art, and math curricula.

We are a school-wide Title I school, and we strive to provide engaging and motivating learning opportunities that meet the needs of every child. My students take great pride in their school and work together to make it the best school possible.

My Project

I am moving to a new school this year, and I am working very hard to make my classroom a warm, welcoming place to learn and grow. We are in a bungalow, so I would like to add this colorful carpet so that the students and I have a comfortable place to sit and learn.

This STEAM themed rug will provide the perfect place for the students and I to sit together to read, have discussions about the concepts we are learning, and to come together as a class at the end of the day to reflect on our learning.
