My Students

Our students are unique because of the diversity found within our classroom. Currently, I teach inclusion Algebra 2, serving approximately 150 students. I also have two co-teachers. For those who don't know, inclusion education is the integration of special needs students with the general population.

My classroom is a place for diverse students to learn and grow into young adults with the skills to thrive in our ever-developing world.

These students come from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our school is almost all low income, with students from all around the world. Thirty-nine percent of our students are English Language Learners as well. We have been named the most diverse school in the state of Arkansas. Our goal is to provide every possible advantage for our students to develop the skills necessary to become as successful as they can be, regardless of how their disabilities may try to hinder them.

My Project

There are many children living in poverty, unable to purchase basic supplies such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, etc.

Kids often come to school embarrassed because they have unwashed hair, teeth that haven't been clean, or covering up their arms because they don't have access to deodorant.

When students are concerned about their appearance and physical well being, it can take a toll on their education. Students should be able to come to school to not only learn, but also socialize and make friends. Students who come to school without access to hygiene projects will focus more on that rather than their education and friends.

By donating to this project, you can help students who don't have access to dental essentials.
