My Students

My students are optimistic, supportive, and determined. Many are dealing with tough situations at home, but they don't let that stop them. I teach Science, which isn't the easiest subject to learn. Most of my students haven't been exposed to topics like matter and chemical reactions, but they put their hearts into learning and make me proud every day. I focus on inquiry and critical thinking, which can be challenging for students, but they help each other learn and grow.

My Project

Many students struggle to comprehend the differences between chemical and physical properties, and how to recognize them. Without that knowledge, understanding all other concepts connected to matter can feel impossible, especially for my students with special needs. When students take part in STEM projects, like this project, they make more connections because they are having fun and enjoying their work. Most of the time, they don't even realize how much they have learned until we debrief after the project. These STEM kits will provide my students a hands-on opportunity to see and experiment with various elements and chemicals to experience the differences themselves. The students will work in small groups to design their own inquiry project using the supplies. After testing its complete, they will analyze their findings and present them to the class. Once this project is completed, we will build on their new knowledge to understand matter and its place in the natural world.
