I was always told that I would make an excellent teacher. I even tested the waters of teaching when I was in college. It just was not the right time for me.

On my birthday, July 13, 2017 I told myself, I would become a teacher by my birthday the following year. I was accepted into Urban Teachers, early 2018 in and decided to come to Baltimore to start my teaching journey. July 13,2018 I spent in a classroom of wonderful rising first graders.

June 2018-May 2019, I was given a year of observing teachers and studying at Johns Hopkins University, September 3rd, 2019, I will have my first group of wonderful students to call my own class.

"I've heard your song loud an clear, I want to teach you to harmonize with the world"”

Highlandtown Elementary #215

Location Pin Baltimore, MD

28 Students

2nd Grades

1 Years experience

Since 2019


What will the funds be used for

This is my first year teaching and it takes a village to raise a child. I teach second grade at Highlandtown #215. The population of students is predominately Latinx students.

With the funds it is intended to provide my students the opportunities to explore the world. That exploration may look like books, trips, or other means of bringing new worlds to my students. It will also help in building the classroom culture to make one where they feel safe and learn to be great human beings.

I also want to start getting more Black and Brown students involved in the world of STEM (especially robotics and coding). Any leftover funds will go towards purchasing robotics kits that will be used in getting the students involved in STEM.
