Our school is comprised of 98% African American students. I teach a group of diverse learners who are energetic and inquisitive. My students are "future scientists." Each day I encourage them by telling them that one or more of them will find cures for diseases like cancer and diabetes. They enjoy reading about scientific phenomena and conducting lab experiments to test their hypotheses. These students come from low-income and impoverished homes. They attend an urban neighborhood school that is not afforded the luxury of having available instructional resources such as overhead projectors, lab equipment, books, computers, audio/visual equipment such as Visual Digital Presenters and LCD Projectors. Limited resources have not thwarted their desire to learn and do their best because the teachers are resourceful and creative. They have dreams and aspirations like many students around the world. I am here to try to help them realize their dreams and individual potential.
