My Students

My students are our future scientists! They energetically enter the class, smiling, giving out fist bumps, and they are full of curiosity. They are unstoppable at solving problems, and designing innovative solutions.

They are creative, courageous, and enthusiastic problem solvers.

We need to give them the tools they need today, to strengthen their skills for tomorrow. They love conquering challenges. We need these kinds of innovators in our communities. There isn't a day that goes by where they don't demonstrate that they will make a difference in our world!

My Project

Each year my students eagerly ask, "what will we be dissecting this year?". I usually give a vague response and say it'll be something. We usually dissect a kidney bean and examine the embryo, before germinating a variety of seeds to explore viability.

What about examining the valves in a sheep heart, or cutting open and exploring a starfish?

My students will NEVER forget what that is like! The "ewws" will turn into "wows" as their genuine curiosity embeds how heart valves and vascular chambers work, and how unusual a starfish is compared to other animals from the marine environment.

My students may live in a high poverty community, but they are destined for improving our communities and are our future scientists and healthcare workers.

All it takes is opportunities and the tools for them to experience what it is like. I hope you will join me in giving them a hand up to a greater future! They will never forget the experience and will certainly remember you care enough to help them get there!
