My Students

My school is comprised of 88% minority students and 63% of our students receive free or reduced price lunch. Our school is ranked in the bottom 50% of all 3,601 schools in Florida. However, these numbers do not tell the true story of how incredible the students at our high school are. Every year these kids amaze me with the connections they are able to make and with the passion they develop towards their community, as well as history.

I truly believe that these students will change the world, and I want to do everything I can to help them do it.

My Project

Currently, I am teaching six blended classes. This means that I am in my classroom with anywhere between 6-18 students teaching them in person while simultaneously teaching 25-50 students at home, with them watching me on a webcam. After making it through one week I have noticed that we desperately need the in-class face-to-face students to have headsets with microphones. This way they can hear what the students at home are saying, communicate with them while working on group assignments, and complete the digital assignments that have sound, like video clips.
