My Students

My classroom is full of life and every student is welcome. I have many students who eat lunch with me or visit me who are not in any of my classes. My classroom is a safe zone where kids can feel comfortable to be themselves.

My students come from mixed demographics.

However, I have a larger percentage of kids from underprivileged homes. Everything that I request for my classroom is directly used with all my students. My kids are full of life and are eager to learn. They are all around 12 to 13 years old and will be adults in the next five years. They are the future of our country, and I take teaching them very seriously. They will be the people who change the world!

My Project

My students are constantly researching colleges, careers, and scholarships. We have several laptops that have been generously gifted to us however, we don't have one for every student. We are slowly fundraising to be able to have enough laptops for every student. We will learn so much about universities that my kids have never even heard of. This laptop can open a world of possibilities to my kids. During their research, they might come across the college of their dreams that they didn't know they wanted. I want them to constantly be looking at the unlimited opportunities that lie ahead of them.
