My Students

I teach AP Psychology and Abnormal Psychology at a large public high school. My students are highly motivated young people who are fascinated with topics like sensation and perception, neuroscience, and psychological disorders and treatment. Many of them are first-time AP students and will be the first in their families to pursue college after high school. Many of them go on to careers in psychology and helping professions, as well as research-oriented careers. Their hard work and high interest help to inspire me every day!

My Project

This project is to fund materials for a breakout box activity for my AP Psychology and Abnormal Psychology classrooms. Students will work in teams to solve puzzles and challenges that require them to apply their knowledge of psychology to "break in" to the box!

Your donation will help fund the purchase of the supplies needed to construct this exciting team-building challenge for students!

My students are highly motivated and very capable students whose knowledge of psychology will benefit their community for many years to come. Many of them will be first-generation college students and they will benefit immensely from the conceptually complex material this activity will allow them to explore.

Thank you for considering this worthy project!
