My Students

Our school has an incredibly diverse population of students who come from mid and lower socioeconomic backgrounds. I am the only science teacher at the school for 600 students in grades one through six. First to fourth graders come to science once a week while fifth and sixth graders come to science twice a week. We learn mostly by hands on activities to support their multiple learning styles. They are motivated and eager to learn if I incorporate hands on experiments.

My Project

Most of my students come from low income families and they are limited English language learners. This project will benefit close to 400 students.

Raising butterflies and releasing them into the environment teaches them Environmental Science.

Students have wonderful experience witnessing each of the metamorphic stages unfolding in front of them. Students will get an opportunity to learn life sciences, ask meaningful questions, and understand the significance of different metamorphic stages.

To witness live caterpillars growing, changing into chrysalis stage and finally emerging as butterflies will be an unforgettable learning experience to most of my students. Our science lab will come alive with this project.
