My Students

"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishment toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results."—Andrew Carnegie

This quote has inspired me as an educator.

I work with an amazing group of children who are eager to learn. I enjoy seeing the excitement in their eyes when we get ready to complete a science lab. My students come from diverse backgrounds which make them unique. Many of my students come from low-income families; however, they are the best kids on the planet.

My Project

I would love to provide my students with the opportunity to have a STEAM experience with all of these wonderful artistic and science engineering tools! I hope that by providing the play dough and tools, students can be creative in building whatever they can imagine!

According to the Department of Commerce, those with a STEM degree earn on average 26 percent more than their non-STEM counterparts.

As an educator, I feel it is my responsibility to provide my female students of color with the every possible exciting opportunity.

Your help will ensure that my students have the opportunity to truly understand what it means to work together to complete a task.

Your donation will give my students an experience of a life time. Thank you so much for your support.
