My Students

I teach Honors Chemistry, IB Chemistry 1 and 2 at a Title I High School in Atlanta, GA. I am a first year teacher and a Woodrow Wilson Fellow who embarked on the journey of purposefully working in an urban school because I believe in the right to quality education of every child, no matter of the socio-economic background. My motto is "I teach Science and Peace" and I am constantly trying to model kindness and scientific curiosity for my students.

My students are also curious but most of them need a little boost of confidence in their ability to understand and apply science.

I am constantly looking for ways to help them and group projects are one that helps in many ways.

My Project

When school starts few students are excited about Chemistry, but most are already intimidated because they think it's going to be hard. I tell them I can make Chemistry EASY and FUN and I am doing my best thorough the year to keep my promise.

The Post-it and markers are very useful with group projects.

Colored projects where students can collaborate are always fun. Once I took the projects on the hallways and asked each group to grade each other. It was a fun day when we did Chemistry on the hallways.

Snacks are necessary to give them the little energy they might need at times to keep them focused. Almost every day a student is asking for food and I appreciate the trust they have in me, but I can't always feed them, so please help. Thank you!
