My Students

In my seventh grade geography classroom, students discover and explore the world. They begin to develop an understanding of their role as global citizens and the influence they can have on their community.

The student makeup of my school is extremely diverse.

My school educates some of the highest percentages of African-American, Hmong and Latino students in the district. Many of our students come from economically challenged households. As close to seventy percent of our student body qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch. One out of five students is a special education learner.

I am honored to be able to educate these amazing students. They are thoughtful, creative and they work hard. They deserve the very best. I want their classroom to be a safe, fun and exciting environment in which to learn. I strive to make school feel like a second home. I want my classroom to look the way I make my students feel which is empowered, happy and creative.

My Project

It's gotten cold here in Wisconsin! The temperatures have dropped below freezing and many students are coming to school without the warm clothes they need. The hooded sweatshirts and socks in this project are of the greatest need among students in our school. Students are either missing these items or they are stained, ripped, or have holes.

It's difficult for students to concentrate when they are worried about meeting their basic needs.

For some of my students, having enough warm clothes in good condition is a constant worry. This project would help to alleviate some of this stress and allow students to focus more on their academics.
