My Students

My students live and go to school on an Air Force base. They come from all over the country and have landed in my classroom bringing unique backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. They come because their parents’ jobs have determined that it was important for them to move. They leave behind family, friends, cities, and schools that they love and join the ranks of others, just like them, with smiles on their faces and a can-do attitude!

They deserve the best education that we can offer!

One that is filled with engaging materials, and enriching opportunities. They deserve to have their education be one that expands their knowledge of the world around them in a meaningful way.

My Project

All of the first grade students at my school will have the opportunity to take a field trip to the Clark Center for Performing Arts to see the Harmony Artists give new perspectives on science with their performance of the Super Scientific Circus.

The students will see the scientific concepts they are learning about in class come to life with boomerangs, bubbles, beach balls, bull whips, and magic!

The principles of friction, inertia, centripetal force, aerodynamics, sonic booms, air pressure and ultraviolet light will all be demonstrated for the students in a unique, fun, relatable and engaging manner that these students will never forget!
