My Students

To inspire our next generation to be invested in exploring and solving the math and science challenges of the world, we need to provide them with the basic tools to succeed. Yet my students do not even have real homework planners to keep track of their assignments.

My 6th grade students are smart, curious, and inspiring young people.

They are full of energy and excitement, and want to learn as much as they can about science and the world around them. They ask intelligent questions, challenge what they learn in class, and apply concepts to the world around them. My students attend a school on a military base in HI. Therefore the majority of them have parents or guardians that serve in the military. They are tough and resilient kids, as they move around the country and world every three years, and face daily challenges when their parents are frequently deployed abroad.

My Project

We are requesting basic, yet essential materials for our classroom to be an organized, colorful, and engaging learning environment. My students are new to the demands of a middle school environment, yet we don't even have the resources to provide proper homework planners to copy their assignments and keep track of deadlines. As a result many of them frequently miss deadlines and lose things. Real calendar-based homework planners will help teach my students essential skills to be organized and productive students and young adults. In addition, we are requesting pencils, markers, colored pencils, spiral notebooks, and scissors to create interactive science notebooks. These notebooks will give students the opportunity to again not only stay more organized, but be creative and colorful in their exploration of Physical Science. These notebooks will allow students to take ownership of their science studies and be more creatively engaged!

Donations to this project will greatly effect the organization and engagement of my incredibly bright and deserving military students.

As their parents and guardians are serving our country, they face incredible challenges and hardships. It is my goal to create a stable, organized, warm, and engaging classroom environment for my amazing students--and these resources will help accomplish this goal. Please help support my students, as their parents are all supporting our country!
