My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite those challenges, my students embrace their love for science every day as we learn about each other and the planet we live on!

Our science classroom is a place for growth and discovery.

We spend lots of time exploring, experimenting, and discussing valuable science lessons that will open up doors of opportunity for them in the future. Many of my students are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I want to provide experiences and skills that they can take with them after they leave high school!

My Project

In order to be successful in biology, my students will need very basic materials such as notebooks, pencils, glue, etc. These materials - along with recycling bins, whiteboards, and sticky notes - will help bring science to life in our classroom!

Science is something that happens OUTSIDE our classroom!

In order for the students to understand this, they need the materials to learn the good, bad, and ugly involved in biology!

"How can we make a difference? Why is science important? What can we do to help our environment and people learn about it?" are just a few of the questions our students come in with and leave understanding at the end of the school year!
