My Students

I am so privileged to teach a group of about 60 outstanding third graders at CHES. CHES is a Title I school located in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee. Most students in my classroom are either Hispanic or African American. They come to school daily eager to learn and succeed.

School is a safe place full of love, learning, and excitement for my students and I strive to give them the education that they deserve and need to survive!

My Project

This year my grade level will be departmentalized. The items in this project will give my students the opportunity to gather information, make hypothesis, and have hands-on experiences in testing their hypothesis all in my classroom! My students will also get the chance to study social studies and learn to be responsible citizens in our country.

I am so excited that my students will finally get to learn the importance of science and social studies through hands on and engaging lessons.

Lately, science and social studies are subjects that are overlooked in a lot of classrooms. However, this year my students will not only tune into science and socials studies, but they will also be in a classroom designated for this learning! With your help, I will be able to give my students their best year yet of content learning!
