My Students

My students are active learners, with many goals and too many challenges. Through these challenges, I continue to try new ways to get them to enjoy fifth grade and love learning. Whether it be, hands-on STEM activities or finding the right seating, I actively work towards reaching each student.

We are in a small, close-knit town located on the coast of Maine.

Several different towns build our school. We are known as the large elementary school in this area. However, we would be considered small by most areas. We have just under four hundred students PK-8. The majority of our students are involved in the free and reduced lunch program.

My projects will not only benefit my present students, but many years to come.

My Project

Fifth grade students need science daily. With your donation, these students would be able to perform different science experiments relating to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). My students learn with hands-on experiences, and these kits will expand what I can bring to them. Some of the items include, a ocean currents lab, soil testing kit, and water purification lab.

One kit will help students learn about water pollution, and what can be done to help and prevent this current issue.

I hope I can get students excited about science, so they can continue a career in the field of science.
