My Students

Lexington High School offers a vigorous ensemble of academic and extra-curricular opportunities for students in a technology-rich learning environment. LHS is one of the most culturally diverse schools in the state, with students coming from more than 40 countries and speaking greater than 30 languages. More than 25% of our students are identified as English Language Learners and first-generation immigrants/refugees. My high school students are hungry for every opportunity to learn about how math is used in the real world.

My Project

Our school district is a STEM participant in the Nebraska. This project will allow my students to go beyond the time frame when the "trailer" of STEM activities will be shared by teachers at three different schools to continue throughout the school year to explore careers in not only mathematics but also in science, technology and engineering. My students are higher level students that sometimes have not explored options as to possible careers that may be of interest to them or would best fit their personality. Many of my Hispanic students who are very bright have always seen meat packing plants or the local fast food restaurants as their only option for employment after high school. They are from families that the well-being of family comes first and they are generally first generation who would pursue an occupation that requires four years or more at higher education.
