My Students

My students are so free and full of life. They are eager to learn and succeed. Although they reside in the highly impoverished community of Englewood (Southside of Chicago), they are determined to be their best. They refuse to be products of their environment. Most of them come from single-parent homes or are living in temporary living situations. This vicinity is a high poverty, crime stricken neighborhood, where violence is the only way some know how to survive. My students deserve a chance at better.

We live by a creed at PECS.

"We believe in the creation of inspired lives produced by the miracle of hard work. We are not frightened by the challenges of reality but believe that we can change our conception of this world and our place within it. So we work, plan, build and dream – in that order. We believe that one must earn the right to dream. Our talent, discipline and integrity will be our contribution to a new world because we believe that we can take this place, this time and this people, and make a better place, a better time and a better

My Project

I would love to offer more online resources all students in my classroom. These online resources can come from the KINDLE FIRE TABLETS. There are multiple ways I'm hoping to implement these tablets and headphones with my students. Students will have the option to choose book titles that interest them and are on their level.

My students use math programs like Prodigy, Epic, Scootpad, and more.

I want to offer them these programs as needed and not just when tablets or laptops are available at the school. I want to be able to include these tablets as part of my lesson planning for ALL subjects.
