I teach Chemistry, AP Psychology and special education Physical Science to 141 10-12th graders. Our school is a small, poorly funded charter school that lacks sufficient resources. Our school's main priority has been the Math and English classes due to high stakes testing in those areas. As a result, our small science department receives little funding and is forced to do more work with less resources. Despite not having enough money for labs, I want my students to experience my passion for science. My students are so eager to learn, eager to discover the world, eager to share their thoughts and eager to succeed. I want my students to succeed and become college ready. A significant part to college readiness is having the ability to write. Our science department needs extra resources to prepare students for college.
