I teach in a small rural district with more than 75% of the students receiving free and reduced-price lunch. I am trying to provide the best opportunity for my students to learn and provide the supplies the students will need so they are able to focus on learning. My students are amazing, thoughtful children trying their hardest. The students come from hard-working families.
We are a very small school nestled in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
We are the Wolverines!
Being from a very small rural school district, most students can not afford supplies to come back to school. I supply the needed supplies for my 6-12 science classes. Any help to support this project would help me out greatly! I have only been teaching for a couple of years as I changed professions from being a medical technologist. I changed because I want to help students LOVE science and understand the world around them. These supplies will allow me to create an organized approach to teaching and students will have their needs. The students will use these supplies to do science projects, modeling in science and Solve STEM activity challenges. The binders will be used to create interactive binders allowing students an engaged, visual method of learning. I appreciate and help given to fun this project! I would LOVE to make my goal!
