My Students

My school is a large Title I school where eighty percent of the students live below the poverty line. My students are academically and economically diverse. Many of them face situations that no child should ever face, like being temporarily homeless. Yet, they are also hardworking, enthusiastic young people full of potential and possibilities. They have lots of life and energy.

They love to learn, especially in new and exciting ways, and they recognize that they are part of a larger, generous community.

Please consider helping me to make this their best year ever!

My Project

My students are studying the various systems of the body in science and they love it. My project is to give them a a human torso that can be taken apart and studied so that they will understand how the various systems of the body are connected. I know that they will enjoy working with it and seeing where everything is located rather than studying those systems in isolation. This may lead to some of them being interested in the medical field in the future.

Kids enjoy hands on STEM activities.

Science comes to life when the they can touch and manipulate what they are learning. Therefore, my final piece of this project is for both a magnetic skeletal set as well as a magnetic human body. My students will be able to work with the pieces of the human body by arranging them on our magnetic, dry erase board. They will love it! Will you help me bring the human body to life? Let's build!
