My Students

My students are very energetic and interested in learning. They make coming to work so worth it. My students when they come in are ready for the day, they start their day on the right foot and continue that attitude throughout the day. It is very rewarding to see the learning in their eyes.

My students are engaged from the moment the bell rings, participating in learning communitits, helping others, and aspire to do their best work everyday.

Giving them the opportunity to to shine in my class makes teaching all worth it.

My Project

Bringing the real world into the classroom through reading allows the students to make connections in science. They will realize that math and science are always being used not only in the classroom but in everything they do.

These articles will give them that chance to better understand how they can relate science outside the classroom.

They need to know that we do not always have to learn science in a traditional way, but reading interesting articles on how science plays an intrical role in our everyday lives.

The students will have the opportunity to read articles about science that relates to the real world. They will continue to learn about science through real world articles that are interesting to them.
