My Students

Our student population is highly diverse in many ways. We are one of the most ethnically diverse schools in San Francisco, 45% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, and 1/3 of our students are English-language learners.

Despite these many differences, there is one area where our students are all the same - they all LOVE science!

Each week, I prepare materials and a hands-on science lesson for each of our classrooms. Despite differences in their backgrounds or ability to speak English, hands-on science ignites interest and curiosity in all of our students. Our students can be heard hopefully asking, "Is there science today?!?" Our goal is to give our students a strong foundation in science and a love of learning science, so that they can continue to gain the knowledge and skills they will need for tomorrow's jobs.

My Project

When I think back about science in my elementary school, what I remember most were the awesome science newsletters we received each month. I still remember reading for the first time about dust mites and realizing there were tiny creatures crawling all over me all the time. I remember reading about a man that had the hiccups for 40 years and had to eat his meals as shakes. These articles inspired me to love science.

I want my students to have this same, "No WAY - That is AWESOME" experience!

These science newsletters talk about research going on right now in the world. They make the scientists performing them real people. They provide experiments students can try at home. And, they build students ability to analyze what is a "testable" question.
