My Students

We are an inner city school with a mix of multiculturalism. Therefore, they love their music, language and history. Being an African descent male, I, also love my history. Why, because I can relate and have deeper discussion concerning our school, community and being socially conscious. Working hard is the only key they need. This key I speak of is the Master Key to all doors. With me they will hear that hard work will be rewarded and acknowledged in my classroom. I believe in the two groups of 3's. From the late UCLA coach John Wooden. Never steal, never lie, never cheat! Don't complain, don't make excuses and don't whine.

My Project

Our students will be able have hands-on access to STEAM projects. The LEGOS will allow are students to build, test, evaluate, review and reengineer projects. Our students will improve upon their problem solving and critical thinking skills.

Our Parent room will have a portion of it dedicated to clothes donations which will have suitable storage for proper displaying for families to choose from.

This will allow our older students to assist in the designing and setup of the rooms goal. That is to be inviting and enticing to all parents. The next component will be a education center for parents and graduates to access during the day.
