My Students

My seventh and eighth grade students are some of the brightest, most resilient students on the planet. My students are multi-talented, and include avid readers, those with interest in STEM, musicians, dancers, athletes, and poets. My students are courageous, confident, and determined. Coming from a West Baltimore neighborhood lacking in many resources, my students are creative and resourceful in achieving their dreams.

My students show resilience every day by overcoming tremendous obstacles but always being ready to learn and grow.

Though our classroom is often found lacking in textbooks, lab supplies, and other necessities, my students always make it a priority to learn. They are excited and dedicated to preparing themselves for high school, college or trade school, and the work force.

My Project

My seventh and eighth grade students have spent all year learning Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science, and Life Science. They have shown tremendous growth academically and beyond. For the students who have put forth their best effort academically and consistently followed school rules and expectations, I hope to reward them with two end of the year events, and can only do so with your support!

These events serve as excellent incentive and motivation for my students to continue working hard.

The students know that they must meet the academic and behavioral expectations put in place in order to attend the events. This is an excellent help in keeping students on track as the end of the year approaches. Please help us to make our 3-on-3 basketball tournament and 90's themed dance party a reality!
