My Students

My Noles come to class everyday with an anticipation, desire, enthusiasm, and passion to inquire. They always look forward to an opportunity to apply and connect concepts learned in class to their daily lives. Whether through laboratory investigation or animated simulation, my students always hunger for more. By providing access to the tools needed, you are putting the power to learn in the hands of my students. You are helping to empower and develop the inquiring minds of tommorrow by providing hands-on learning experiences today.

My Project

Modeling kits are essential. Whether aiding the kinesthetic learner or contributing to learning as a visual aid, models demonstrate the otherwise intangible to the students. By using models, such as the requested Biochemistry Student Sets, students will have an opportunity to create a 3-Dimensional replication of atoms and molecules. They will be able to simulate bonding structures. Having these opportunities will allow students to explore a microscopic world to see how atoms form elements that create the molecules that make up the world in which we live in. My students would sincerely appreciate the chance to have the opportunity to have access to modeling kits to further investigate chemical principles.
