My Students

Our school is made up of about 800 students. We have a mix of races and socioeconomic backgrounds. We also have a large military population, so many of our military students come and go throughout the year. Our school, teachers, and students work hard each day. The school has received many awards and is a Blue Ribbon School.

I teach about 65 fifth graders each day.

The way the curriculum is set up, students don't really receive a heavy science instruction until 4th grade. I work hard to make sure that the students get as many hands-on experiences as possible. I want to help prepare them for the middle and high school curriculum ahead. I also try to make math fun and interesting for the students.

My Project

My students are in need of a set of models of insects going through their life cycle. We teach complete metamorphosis and incomplete metamorphosis. The best way for students to fully understand the difference is to see the differences themselves.

Students love looking at real-life insects and animals.

Having these models would mean that the students would have real examples of insects going through the complete and incomplete metamorphosis. Students enjoy being able to see the phases in person, instead of in a photo or drawing. This gives them the best opportunity to learn about the life cycles of insects.
