My Students

I have a very diverse student body consisting of Caucasian, South Asian, East Asian, Middle Eastern, and African American students. I also have English Language learners as well as some students who were refugees.

All of my students make my school a diverse and exciting place for learning.

My students are engaged young people, who are both naturally inquisitive and highly intelligent. They motivate me on a daily basis to do my best for them and are far deserving of any support.

My Project

Hello, Thank you for reading about our proposal. My students need modeling clay and sculpting tools to help create a 3D printed museum. Students will research and design an artifact inspired by an ancient civilization. They will then use the materials from your generous donation to create that artifact out of nondrying clay. We will then scan each design with a 3D laser scanner and print a finished product on our 3D printer. Students will then display their work in a gallery exhibit in our school. Later on, they will do a comparative analysis of their artifact and another student's artifact. The purpose of the project is to get the students to create something tangible that will help them better understand ancient civilizations. Thank you so much for your time and support.
