My Students

My students are inquisitive and creative but often limited by their socioeconomic status. I teach approximately 500 students ( from pre-k to 5th grade) as a Science Lab teacher. We are a Title I school with more than eighty percent of our student population receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

I want my students to realize the power and possibilities that education can provide for their futures.

I want to provide them with rich experiences that will spark their imaginations and expand their horizons. I continue to be amazed by their problem-solving abilities and their innovative "out-of-the-box" thinking.

My Project

Students learn from doing. I want my students to have opportunities to learn the objectives by immersing themselves in hands-on science activities and demonstrations. I have some materials that have been well loved and used over the years. I would like to replace some of these materials and offer some of the materials for teachers to check out for use in their classrooms.

The materials will assist in the teaching of space, energy, force and motion.

Newton's Laws and the Wacky Wheels will be used in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd and 5th grade as they learn about different forces and types of motion. The light unit will assist in teaching objectives about light and shadows to my Kindergartners, 1st, 2nd and 4th graders. The weather experiment books will be utilized by Kindergarten, 2nd and 5th graders.
