My Students

My students are working hard every day to build scientific skills, work together and be successful in and out of school. The school has undergone huge transformational changes not only in terms of leadership, academic performance, and school culture, but almost equally as important, a physical transformation into a brand new campus. Our student population is about 80% Latino and 20% African American. While the school itself has undergone a huge positive transformation, the students still live in Watts.

My students are beyond resilient!

There are five low income housing projects that could potentially attend our school. Each project is associated with a specific gang and the violence that is associated with it. On top of dealing with gang violence on a daily basis our students are also from families with low incomes and some are even dealing with homelessness. I want to help them be successful now and when they venture into the real world.

My Project

The paper is going to be so that we can make individual copies of labs and readings. Students will be able to make their own lab reports from their data and annotate readings so that they are able to better comprehend the readings.

Students at my school also lack the basic supplies that they need every day like pencils, pens and rulers.

This project will allow my students to come to class without worrying about not having a writing utensil.

In an effort to help my students become more organized, they also need folders. The tape is so that when they are putting together projects they have the materials that they need.
