My Students

For years at my school, students had little to no access to hands-on science curriculum. Our school is under a redesign concept that embraces an inquiry approach to learning in a hand-on, child-centered way.

I teach at a low-income, high-need school in NM.

Over half of our students are learning English as a second language. Our community is full of wonderful people who are often experiencing some of the greatest adversities existing in our state. Our families want what is best for their children. I greet up to 26 bright-eyed, eager to learn children each day. They have a thirst for knowledge and LOVE science! Our school is Title I and serves 100% free breakfast and lunch. We are currently adopting a community school philosophy with services in hopes to better serve and reach our families' needs.

My Project

As a second year teacher, I have very little material to enrich my classroom and science curriculum. Having a set of clipboards will help us to gather data and record observations in our scientific queries anywhere we may go, including outdoors and on field experiences. Having arthropods, plants, sea-animals and other real, preserved animals will motivate children to formulate questions, seek answers, and have real-life, close-up observations of the world around them.

Thank you in advance to the wonderful citizen philanthropists on for caring about children.

You are changing the world by investing in our most precious resource, public education. We are inspired by you!
