My Students

Our school is a Title I school where most of the students participate in a free or reduced-price lunch program. Many are academically at risk and come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Several struggle with absences and the desire to come to school. I want to help change that! I want kids to be excited about what they are learning and make connections with their lives outside of school.

Although my students are faced with life's hardships, they have good hearts and inspire me!

My goal is to help students realize that science is not just something that happens at school, but it is all around them. I truly believe the best way to do that is through hands-on-learning. My kids learn best through doing. When I mention there is a lab coming up, students get excited. I have heard the statement, "I wish we could do this more often" over and over from different students. I am always looking for ways to turn what they are learning into a hands-on-experience to make it relevant to their everyday lives and make new connections. This can, however, be a struggle when a department budget is nonexistent for over 300 students.

My Project

Creativity in the classroom is such an important part of education and should be fostered. Students participate more willingly and retain more learning when they are allowed to creatively express their learning. A cricut machine will help foster that creativity by allowing students to create unique projects and learn in a print rich and visually appeasing environment. Students that are in my sewing class will also be able to personalize their sewing projects.

It will make the classroom more colorful, stimulating, and inviting.

This machine will help us organize our classroom and create interesting visuals to go with our Science concepts that students can interact with and refer back to when needed. It will also help better display our daily objectives, agenda, and expectations making them easier to see. The ideas and possibilities for this machine are endless!
