My Students

My students are eager to learn and enjoy challenges. However, some of our challenges at our campus include lack of school supplies and technology. Being part of the largest school district in Texas has its downfalls. Most if not all of my students have zero to little school supplies and needed resource used to be a successful student. Despite the many challenges my students face they come to school every day with a positive attitude and the desire to do better and be better. My students push me to be the best teacher and person I can be. It is my duty as their teacher to do what I can for them. Resources are needed and very much appreciated.

Students at my campus are filled with life and have the desire to grow as students and individuals.

Never have I seen students that appreciate and actually want to learn. Students need a lift in the right direction to help them become the leaders of tomorrow.

My Project

Supplies are limited at my campus and I am constantly spending my own money on markers, crayons, color pencils and things of that nature. Help me help my students and give them the basic essentials needed in the classroom to be successful. My students want to be creative and have the desire to read however we are very limited with resources that are up to today's standards. Students will use the markers to create their interactive notebooks as well as poster board illustrations. My students love to e creative and they love to have friendly poster board challenges. Help my students with some essentials needed to create and design our interactive notebooks. Students will use snap circuits to create and design a circuit of their own as a model home. Students will have a portion of the project to identify and describe the different forms of energy used in their model home and where that for of energy comes from. This is where the alternative energy books would come in handy to help build background knowledge of the subject to my students. Weather and climate would then play a role in where we build our new home and how our home may need to be constructed or the different forms of alternative energy we may need to use to power our new model home. The books are crucial to helping build background knowledge to allow my students to transfer what they have learned from a book into a project of their own. I tried my best to briefly describe how we would use these resources in the classroom. Help make this story a success and many pictures will come to follow of how we put everything to use.
