My Students

I teach chemistry and honors chemistry in public school in Montgomery County, Maryland. I have around 140 students a day. These students range in ability from students that read at a 2nd grade reading level to students who will go onto take AP chemistry before they graduate high school. Some of my students' first language is not English and they can't even read in their own language because of gaps in their education in their home country. Some of my students come from low income homes and receive free & reduced lunch. I even have students that are in the foster system or a group home. In two of my classes I have a para-educator who is like my right hand, I couldn't help all my students without her.

My students come from all walks of life and differing abilities, but they are all hard workers and I wouldn't change having them in my class for anything.

I would love for them to have the tools to help them understand chemistry even better.

My Project

The classroom I am in has a small periodic table on the wall. It is extremely challenging for the students to read the periodic table unless you are standing within 3 feet of it. Along with the size, there is a horrible glare from the overhead lights. If you are across the room from the periodic table, you have almost no chance of seeing what I am referring to. Often I can't read the periodic table from where I am standing.

A larger periodic table will allow students a quick visual about what we are talking about and not always have to dig their periodic tables out.
