My Students

My students are well mannered and know I expect them to be ready to learn at all times. I encourage them to try their very best every day. I am ready to set a great learning foundation for my students. Unfortunately, my students face circumstances of living below the poverty level, limited resources, not being able to bring pencils to school, and parental substance abuse. I try to expose my students to many advanced hands-on learning artful skills as much as possible because they aren't exposed to many things outside of their community. My school does not provide the required resources to expose the students to the best hands-on learning experience needed to keep them engage and increase their academic performance. My school has excellent teachers and administrators that put forth the maximum effort. The students are always ready to learn, some may have extreme obstacles and circumstances that interfere with their learning capabilities. The students are always shining and excelling no matter what and that's the best feeling as an educator. I want to achieve "Essentials for Learning"!

My Project

Imagine being a student striving for excellence and planning to go to college, but lack resources! I want to reward and provide seniors with additional technology resources they can use to complete their assignments, apply to colleges and scholarships. Without having the proper resources students do not have enough time to work on accomplishing various tasks to ensure they are more than prepared. My students would be more than happy to receive additional resources to help them throughout their college preparation. COVID-19 has made this process harder and with these resources, they will get the job done!
