My Students

I teach an extremely diverse group of middle school students. Their life challenges, perseverance, and amazing ability to make me laugh through tricky classroom scenarios absolutely​ set this group apart.

I feel blessed to work with this awe-inspiring group of learners.

They have a deep seeded desire to beat the odds and succeed. They are driven, competitive, spirited, and delightfully funny.

My students meet their challenges in incredible ways. They take the work presented to them and amaze me with their creativity and passion to change the trajectory of their lives. I couldn't be more proud to be their science teacher.

My Project

We are an extremely diverse school with a limited technology budget. My students speak more than 20 different languages and due to a minimal technology budget at school and low socioeconomic status of my students, we are in need of help.

I am a science classroom without student computers, tablets, or reliable access to technology.

Many of my students do not have access to internet, computers, or smartphones at home. I feel that this project and these tablets would greatly enhance my ability to teach STEM and science standards.

With the current push for more technology in the classroom and the ​unbelievable capabilities of my students to shine in the tech world of today, we are in dire need of these tablets.
