My Students

The children in my classroom love to learn and are full of ingenious ideas! They love to try new things and are so eager to branch out in their learning! They are readers, writers, and creators. I would love to see what their bright minds can do when given more opportunities to grow and develope!

These are students whose minds are bright and eager to learn!

These students are full of life. With unlimited possibilities, who knows what they will do!

My Project

As a class, we want to learn more about DNA. Help us learn about DNA by helping to fund our project. We are asking for 3 lab kits.

The kits we would like to have will allow us to investigate whether onions, strawberries, and bananas have DNA.

With learning about fruit DNA, we can apply that knowledge to understanding DNA on a human level.

We, as a class, can not wait to learn more about DNA by actively investigating and learning about fruit DNA. We will be able to with your help, complete the experiments in pairs. We currently have no lab, experiment kits, or equipment.
