My Students

When you first meet my students, you would never guess that their school is located in a low socioeconomic area of our city. These bright leaders of tomorrow, a diverse group of Hispanic and African American children, inspire me every day to be a better teacher.

Our students are athletic and intelligent.

What makes my students special is their curious nature and always wanting to know "why" about the ways of the world.

They are never satisfied with just one general answer, especially when it comes to social and political issues.

My Project

Seventh grade students are in need of new devices for every day learning in the classroom. From digital games to testing, our scholars use hand held technology on a daily basis.

Students will be able to use these tablets primarily in math in order to replace broken devices and move some of our still working technology to our English Language Arts classroom.

We appreciate the support you can provide in order give our students the supplies they need to learn and excell with 21st Century Skills, habits, and expectations for future global leaders.
