My Students

My students are a diverse group with different needs and abilities in and out of the classroom, however they are so eager and willing to learn. When they step foot in our classroom, they know they have a teacher who loves them, classmates who want to help them, and a school environment where they can feel safe and successful. They are passionate about their learning and embrace challenges.

Our school lacks a lot of the resources needed for students to be as successful as they could be.

I am hopeful to help my learners continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

I will be teaching life cycles of plants to my students this year. They already have background knowledge on life cycles, but I am wanting to show my students that animals also go through metamorphic changes like starting out as a tadpole and transforming slowing into a frog. What better way to understand changes than to watch a caterpillar transform into a beautiful butterfly and observing each day the growth and changes? We have a butterfly garden at our school where we can release butterflies once we are done learning about them.

We currently do not have a set curriculum or materials to teach science at my school.

I have the standards and I pull books from the library, but I would love to teach my students about science in a fun, interactive, and educational environment where they can walk away impacted with knowledge because of donors like you who made a difference in education.
