Our school is located in the heart of Jefferson County, Mississippi. Our town has no industry and very few employment opportunities. My students live in a poverty-stricken area, and 100 percent of them qualify for free lunch. More than three fourths of them live in poverty. Twenty five percent of the students are at risk for dropping out of school before they complete high school. These precious children need to learn the basic skills they need to be productive members of society. Job opportunities are very limited in this area and parents struggle to provide basic needs.
Help my students thrive!
These students deserve an education. They desperately need a learning environment in which they can succeed. Help me provide them with a positive learning experience.
We are a D school. Even though that score does not reflect the effort of our wonderful teachers or students -- it is where we are. We are highly motivated to improve that score.
Math activities and individualized lessons will be loaded on this cart and the teacher will move from class to class to help our students with special needs.
This will allow my teacher led center to be fully stocked with everything I will need to meet the needs of our students. Individually designed lessons for each student will be loaded on the cart and carried from class to class.
I look forward to being prepared and organized for each student. We will improve our test scores and raise our school status!
