My Students

My students are a diverse bunch that reside in a poverty stricken area with big dreams and hope for more. My campus was affected by hurricane Harvey. Due to damages we started school two weeks late on August 25th with extended school hours. My kids are excited as every to be back in class as it is a sense of normalcy in the midst of everything else that's going on in our city of Houston, TX.

We are a Title I school, and many of our students do not have opportunities that many other children have.

My Project

Every school year during the assignment know as food chains and food webs, I allow my students to dissect frogs and owl pellets to investigate the dietary and connections that humans have with animals. Students have to know how humans are connected to every animal and organism on this planet.

The frogs and owl pellets will allow my students to have hands-on engaging learning experience.

The computer will be used to assist students with virtual dissection and to display dissecting charts.

This year with a limit budget due to Hurricane Harvey I want my students to experience the technology virtual dissection. By giving my students virtual technology I am helping them in two important areas of education , technology and life science.
