My Students

When you walk into any period day in our classroom you will see 30 smiling and excited faces. My students come from many different cultures and backgrounds. They even come from different boroughs in New York City! Many students are English language learners and some are the first in their families to get a proper education here in the United States. We are one of the most diverse schools in the NYC DOE.

If you ask any of my students what their favorite subject is they will undoubtedly tell you, Science!

My students love learning about new things especially science that affects them locally in their everyday lives. What they love most is learning in and out of the classroom.

My Project

At school, I am the advisor for the science club. This club helps students to learn different sciences than what their classes teach and allows them to explore their scientific interests that they might want to study in college. We also emphasize being outside and doing more fieldwork to get our students exposure to real life science. This year, the science club is having an overnight astronomy camping trip but we need telescopes!

My students are obsessed with astronomy and what our place is in the universe.

They cannot wait to learn all about the sky, planets, stars, and universe.
