My Students

Everyday, my students work relentlessly hard to grow academically, social-emotionally and become justice-oriented individuals. My students use their knowledge and skills to eliminate the various systems of oppression that keep them and their families from achieving their full potential.

My class is a group of passionate, funny, freedom-fighting and inquisitive kids who want to use their education to improve their lives and community.

Our students' daily lives are full of adversity. At our school, one hundred percent of students qualify and receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of our students face many challenges at home; however, this does not get in the way of their success. Instead, they persevere and continue to strive for and achieve excellence.

My Project

Everyday, regardless of the subject, I strive to teach my students in a manner that enables my students to apply what they have learned in our class to their daily lives. Education should be practical. Students should use what they learned in class to learn more about themselves and the world around them. Moreover, the knowledge that students accumulate during their education should allow them to solve real-world problems. both big and small. I love hearing my students tell me that they used their rounding and estimating skills to help their family plan a summer trip to El Salvador.

Math and science are so much more than just words and numbers on a paper or whiteboard.

Math and science concepts are best learned when students can create and take apart their projects.

This project will help me continue to bring to life my math and science lessons by providing us with the flex spaces students need to carry out their STEM projects comfortably. Currently, my students do not have access to several spaces where they can build or take apart their prototypes/creations without bumping into one of their colleagues or invading the area of the person sitting right next to them. Your support will help us address the following third grade New Generation Science Standards:
