Help me give my students technology for learning and applying science in the 21st century! We want to do simulated dissections, explore an online periodic table, program toy cars to move and calculate variables and so much more!
Starting this year, I am honored to be the Science teacher for 71 gifted and talented students in a newly transformed Dallas ISD Academy for TAG students.
My students are amazing: very smart, creative, funny, curious, they have great ideas and I learn a lot from them, myself.
They all work really hard to build a good future for themselves and their families.
I want to give my students the opportunity to build a strong love for Science. I want them to feel comfortable and important while in my class, I want them to know that their work matters. I want them to learn through exploring and hands-on activities.
I am passionate about making a difference in my students' lives as they are my future, our future, and they deserve the best.
Our school is located in a building constructed in 1951 and designed to host only elementary grades students. Any help with supplies will make a big difference in my science class!
Thank you in advance!
My students are extremely smart and advanced, they are gifted students!
They need technology, in particular 1:1 access to computers, to explore more than what I can just show them, as they have many challenging questions, they are 'hungry' for knowledge and discovery.
I would like them able to do a virtual dissection, a small surgical intervention, review with online puzzles and quizzes, overall give them a preview of College days or Medical School, as these are the kids who will be the physicians, architectures and other advanced professionals of tomorrow.
It would be great to have a class set of Chromebooks to allow my students use them for research, learning and assessing. Thank you for helping me make a difference!
