My Students

Creative and busy--that's a typical day. I only get one hour and a half with each of my three classes a day. By the end of the year, I want all of my students to achieve their academic potential and learn science by completing hands-on activities.

My students are eager to learn, eager to work, and eager to become scientists.

Our school is blessed to have over 800 neighborhood children as well as many military children from our local Air Force Base. In fact, our school enrollment includes 32% military students.

Since our school has such a great reputation because of our high academic expectations as well as receiving an "A" rating from our state department, we are a highly desired location for military families that get stationed at our local military base. The school population is also multi-cultural with students coming from many different ethnic backgrounds.

But everything is not all rosy, and there is a growing population of lower economic students who are attending our school. They require interventions to be successful and exposure to a wide variety of science activities to encourage each student's success.

My Project

This year my students and I are beginning a new adventure. I'm teaching Social Studies for the first time and they are learning 5th grade Social Studies for the first time. We are going on expeditions and exploration of many time periods in history.

How cool would it be for my students to be back in an ancient Mayan civilization or experience Jamestown first hand?

Going on Google Expeditions with virtual reality headsets would give my students the ability to be a part of history, to take a field trip without even leaving our classroom. Today's students don't want to just read about history, they want to experience what it was like to actually be there. What better way to understand history than to see and virtually be where history happened?
