My Students

I have wonderful students who want to learn and thrive in a hands-on environment. The majority of my students come from low income families and have troubled home lives. They love coming to my class and I love sharing science and medicine with them to get them excited about the possibility of a future. Many of my students will continue to pursue careers in the medical field with great success.

I am blessed to teach such motivated and talented young people who are the future of medicine.

I look forward to watching them grow and learn each and every day.

My Project

The requested Carolina Visual Perception Kit and Cow Eyes will make it possible to teach a lesson about the structure and function of the human eye using a hands-on activity.

The visual perception kit enables students to investigate many of the physiological processes involved in human vision.

Featured activities include testing for visual acuity, depth perception, peripheral vision, color vision, and astigmatism; positive and negative afterimages; optical illusions; and more.

Hands-on lab dissection of the cow eyes allows students to retain information in long-term memory and engages them in learning science!

Your donation will help make learning more fun in the classroom! Please consider funding our eye project!
