My Students

My scholars love engaging in hands-on learning. Many of them have never had an entire class dedicated to science and are eager to learn more about it.

My scholars are full of zest, optimism, and grit and deserve the supplies needed to create a kinesthetic learning environment full of possibilities.

They have overcome financial disadvantage, destruction from Hurricane Harvey and so much more. They are an inspiration for all to see and all should see that their learning is supported!

My Project

Students will have access to hands on experiences that will only make their learning sticker. Scholars will be learning about ecosystems and organisms so aquatic, oil, and gardening supplies are essential to providing real-world connections to support their learning. Mini Scientist are HIGHLY tested in 5th grade Science in the state of Texas. Studies have proven that if scholars feel valued their test results are significantly better. I want to ensure that I am celebrating my scholars victories and growth as they strive to be stronger, better, and brighter Mini Scientist. I will be able to this by rewarding them with an end of the year Rube Goldberg project and various minds on trinkets.
