My Students

Our school is a Title I school in a predominately Latinx community. Our chemistry classrooms are meant for the material to become relatable through social issues and using real-world phenomenon. All students work together in groups toward learning, sustaining, and strengthening their scientific understanding and critical reasoning.

I aim to support my future students in becoming self-directed, passionate learners who actively think critically about the world around them.

Throughout the school year, students will work toward becoming fully engaged agents of social change and advocates of their communities.

My Project

As a first year teacher, I am building my classroom from the ground up! Teaching high schoolers, I want to be sure my students have less to worry about and give them more time to focus on their classes.

High Schoolers have a lot to focus on and the last thing they should have to worry about is if they can afford school supplies.

The poster boards will allow students to do their work on large papers that can be used to be presented to the rest of the class, while the pens, markers, and colored pencils will allow them to express themselves creatively during activities. The sticky notes and index cards will help the students during gallery walks and other activities that focus on learning from each other. The periodic table poster is a staple in every chemistry classroom and I want to make sure that my students will become more familiar with the periodic elements. The kleenex tissues and disinfectant wipes are to assure that my students have a clean and healthy classroom.
