My Students

Our school's students have a wonderful curiosity that makes my job as the science teacher such a wonderful experience. With so many classes and only me to teach science, I need to find creative ways to bring engaging and instructional online science resources to all our teachers. Finding cultural bridges between science and the arts allows me to better differentiate my instruction and lessons for all my students.

Our Title I Elementary School in Brooklyn has a diverse population of students who all qualify for free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.

My science classes are comprised of General Education, English Language Learners, and Special Education students from many different cultures, and all with a variety of learning styles. They are exciting to watch in action and all love to try and discover. So many times I'm overwhelmed at their competence and determination to learn and achieve.

My Project

We've been watching Baby Fiona growing from birth (who hasn't?!) and this requested book Fiona's Feelings will be used for my lessons on compassion with nature. As my students learn more about ecosystems and wildlife we've been watching Fiona and the different eagle nests nationwide. It's my goal to instill in each child a love of nature and a respect for the animals that are so diverse and special to each environment. The book will be used for different Read-Alouds and independent reading time.

The HP OfficeJet printer will be used to create hard copies of each student's reports and projects.

As they learn about different animals, students will be creating reports and presentations which will be displayed and eventually placed in their science folders. Most of my students do not have a printer at home so having one in the classroom will make all the difference in the world. It will even the playing field when everyone can have something colorful in their hands.

Thank you for your continued support of my science students.
