My Students

The students I serve are much more than the stigma of a school district that is nestled in, what was only a few years back, recognized as the poorest small city in the country. Many are from bilingual, low-income families, some of whom have recently relocated to the United States.

Although I serve a financially disadvantaged community, with 97% of our school's population living in poverty, it saddens me that my students are provided with resources that pale in comparison to more affluent neighboring school districts.

Similar to any individual in their age group, my students are inherently curious and creative individuals, who each have a unique perspective on the way the world works. An important part of my time with my students is helping them to realize how wonderful their perspectives are, and offering each of them opportunities to shine!

My Project

With our academic year quickly coming to an end, my students will be hosting a celebration of our year's learnings with an evening of science for our families. Student-led demonstrations will feature various concepts that we have explored throughout the year in Physical Science.

Materials from this project such as the colored printer ink and poster board will help my students create a visual display of their digitally created infographics which will provide an explanation for the phenomenon that they are sharing with their audience.

Having display boards at their demonstration table will assist my students in their explanations for what they are presenting. The pencils, markers and glue will help my students go beyond the digital representation of their knowledge created with Google Drawing,

This will be a fantastic family event to round out our year together. Thank you for your consideration of this project which is a balance of scientific undsersanding with their use of technology.
