My Students

The students I have the opportunity to work with are creative, innovative, enthusiastic young people who are known to thank their teachers when they leave classrooms. There are over 1,100 students on campus in grades four through eight. It wasn't always like this, but in the past few years, the school has blossomed as the result of a visionary principal, progressive staff and active parent community. As a result, there is now a lottery and long wait list for new enrollees.

Parents are coming in droves to visit the campus and see all it has to offer including a wide variety of elective classes that you would normally only have access to in high school or college.

For example, students can take Theater, Dance, Speech, Tap, Ensemble, Encore, Keyboards, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Art just to name a few. They can also get involved in a Community Action Team elective course, Future Teacher elective course, or be a part of ASB, Media or Yearbook. They can even learn how to use a 3D printer in a class designed to teach that skill. The students are noticeably vibrant and well behaved. Everyone feels fortunate to be there including me.

My Project

I am teaching a culinary class. The classroom I am in will soon be converted into an actual kitchen. At that time, a commerical three-basin sink will be installed; however, we need a spray nozzle to sanitize our dishes and cookware properly. Students will learn the importance of washing, rinsing, and santizing dishes.

It will also be very helpful to have a touchless soap dispenser to minimize germs in the dishwashing area.

Students will enjoy using the spray nozzle, especially since it is a commercial one used in professional restaurants. They will certainly have an opportunity to discover that cleaning dishes can be fun... sometimes.
