My Students

I teach an awesome and eager group of kindergarten students in an inner-city school where 100% of students receive free school lunch. Most of my students come from a family background where they lack academic and financial support to enrich their academic studies. The majority of these students come from families where parents are too busy working and lack the language or education to help them with their schoolwork. Therefore, the role of the teacher is extremely vital to their learning.

Despite these setbacks, my students are motivated learners who rely heavily on teachers and school support to help them become successful in life.

Our school motto is to be respectful, responsible, and scholarly. In order to help them achieve these goals, I must provide them with the best classroom environment, full of the proper supplies and guidance.

My Project

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics is the latest shift in education. STEM, as it is known, must begin from the early stages of education. Students need to be given the time to explore, create, and build as they make connections to the real world. That is exactly why I am requesting for these STEM kits! These STEM kits are a great way to introduce students to the world of science that exists around them. They will be making real life connections as they build the models of the planes, boats, and cars. They will explore the movement of these vehicles and what drives them to move and what will make them move faster, slower, or in a certain direction!

There is no better way to introduce young energetic minds to science than letting them create with these STEM kits!
