My Students

My classroom is an exciting place where students learn about the human condition, themselves, and society, in addition to studying literature and writing. We connect the works we read to the world around us, expanding our world views and understanding.

My students are built for awesome.

I encourage them to incorporate their interests and ideas to enhance the lessons for themselves and others. They are a culturally diverse and open-minded group of young leaders that will surely make the world a better place in the years to come!

My Project

I have been in this classroom for 13 years. It is time to update and get some new supplies. The Smart Board I have is awesome, but the sound is WEAK. I am asking for Multimedia Monitor speakers that will help improve the multimedia presentations. This will help when we watch newscasts and documentaries.

Additionally, a new whiteboard is really LONG overdue.

If you saw what I have been using, you would agree!

There are also some art supplies needed to help with projects and charts, as well as some books and decorative items to spruce up the room for my students. Join on me this renovation project and improve the high levels of awesome!
