My Students

Students that attend my school come from diverse backgrounds. Many of my students are English Language Learners and many come from low-income households. In order to level the playing field and to allow all my students to succeed in middle school and beyond, they need access to technology and quality hands on materials.

I strive to give my students the most interactive and hands-on learning opportunities in my classroom.

Science concepts are made real through investigation and exploration. Students have fun while learning the content.

My Project

Females are historically underrepresented in STEM careers. Females are told math and science are "for boys". Research has shown that middle school is a time when many girls lose interest in science, math and technology.

I teach all girls 8th grade science and seek to empower them with female role models.

The materials for this project will give them access to books and posters that inspire them to enter STEM fields. The books for this project highlight women scientist and inventors and tell their stories. Girls should know that they can pursue any career they set their mind to, and I wish to convey that to these young ladies. Thank you for looking at my project!
