My Students

Our middle school thrives through the belief that the most effective instruction emphasizes a deep belief that all children can learn and thrive. Our school has a special spirit; we are unwavering in our pursuit of excellence! Our students, 73% of whom are Title I eligible, are held to the highest academic standards.

In our English classroom, all students are growing readers.

All learners, regardless of the skills they arrive with, can become better readers. This includes my gifted, honors, grade-level, and resource students.

My Project

Our classroom has tile floors and desks with lots of legs in the way. Our old-fashioned push broom and limited custodial time result in an unpleasant and unwelcoming swirl of dust, hair, pencil shavings, and paper scraps.

Would you want your child to learn in a dirt pile?

I know I wouldn't, and I don't want this for my learners either.

In addition to cutting the gross factor, this robot vacuum would give me more time to write lessons, grade, and provide the best learning for all my classes. It can take over 45 minutes for me to clean, my entire prep period. I bet we can come up with a great name for this new classroom mascot.
