My Students

I have an energetic and excited group of learners. They come in with such varied life experiences and it is my wish to be able to submerge them in a classroom that is rich with hands in activities.In my years of teaching, I have found that most of my students are kinestic learners - need to touch.

My class of 21 student is almost equally divided among boys and girls.

I teach at a Title 1 school so many of my students are not rich in material goods. The are however, rich in desire to learn.. and with that trait, they can break the cycle of lower income and make their world a better place.

My Project

Third Grade standards assess student knowledge of fossils. My class has benefited from the few samples I could gather here and there of actual fossils for them to study. The sets of fossils we hope to receive will allow for hands on activities in pairs or groups. Although third grade is fast paced, the fossil sets will be utilized all year to both learn and review key standards.

My students will be able to see and touch actual examples of what is being studies.

With my student population, that ability is not always easy since funding for education is always an issue. My students will greatly benefit from the used of these science materials.
