My students are bright, creative, curious and love to learn. I teach 380 students in grades Kindergarten to 5th grade, 10% are English Language learners and 40% are economically disadvantaged. My students represent 30 different countries and bring so much light into this world through their energy and caring nature.
To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.
My goal is to reach my energetic students with real-life learning experience through hands-on experiences and meaningful learning ways.
My Project is to replace existing garden beds that have deteriorated over time. The new garden beds are synonymous with excitement, opportunity, and healthy living for my students. The second phase of this successful gardening project will continue to expose students to new cherished experiences like mindfulness, an understanding of ecology, patience, and nutrition.
The school garden allows the students to use their imagination and make a place at school they can be proud of and call their own while creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Our school garden is meant to generate curiosity and motivation toward sustainable gardening and healthy eating habits.
