My Students

I teach 90 students in grades 9-12 in Chemistry. My students live in Trenton, NJ, the capital of NJ. Trenton is ranked as the 3rd city in the state of NJ for violent crimes. My students are the shining hope of their city. We teach and encourage our children to go out and attend the finest colleges and come back and build their city back up.

My students are the hardest working, kindest, most thankful children I’ve ever known.

They take on difficult concepts and show grit with new material. They have dreams and goals. They're going to change the world and I'm so thankful to be a part of their education.

My Project

Chemistry is a difficult subject to learn. My students learn best when they are able to play games to learn the content. This game will help my students to learn the different groups of the periodic table. They will use this understanding to help identify similarities within the groups/families of the periodic table, which will help them to eventually use this knowledge when learning other Chemistry concepts.

Chemistry is a subject that my students have never been exposed to.

It is at times overwhelming to my students because they're learning new concepts, new math, and new vocabulary at the same time.

These games will help my students to learn the groups on the periodic table in a fun and creative way. I would use these not only as a tool of instruction but also for an incentive for students if they do well on a task. I believe that games can be educational and fun at the same time.
