My Students

My students are inventive, thoughtful, and curious. They love to ask questions, experiment, and problem-solve. Still, they come to school facing the age-old challenges of adolescence alongside outside struggles that no person should have to face. Our school is in the southeast part of San Francisco where many hardworking families struggle to make ends meet.

My students come from diverse family backgrounds, but they share the promise of a bright future.

An engaging science education opens an ocean of possibilities for a child--please help my students dive right in!

My Project

Middle school is a funky, formative time in life, and science class is the perfect opportunity for a young person to get curious about the world! My students are are creative, thoughtful, and innovative. In our class, they build their skills in working collaboratively, asking questions, and investigating real-world problems. My goal is for every student to feel passionately about science, but my students are working on building skills that are applicable in all parts of life.

A color printer and ink will help science come alive with vibrant colors and provide more opportunities for art and science to collide!

While Inkjet printers are less expensive than color Laserjet printers initially, the Laserjet printer will pay off in the long term. Inkjet printers use ink at a rapid rate, and the ink that comes with the printer would not even make it through a semester. Therefore, I am requesting this printer with one set of replacement ink so we can experiment in color for a long time. Please consider helping our classroom come alive with color!
