My Students

I am fortunate to teach some pretty amazing students. I teach 4th grade science. The students LOVE to have hands-on experiences. They come in to class excited to learn. The students themselves come from varying backgrounds. Tucked away in Eastern Kentucky, our area has been hit hard by lay offs from the coal mines. The students continue to come to school every day ready to do their best and show what they can do.

These students give 100% of their effort to succeeding in whatever is set in front of them.

I am thrilled to be their teacher. They strive everyday to be better. Each student I am lucky enough to teach is dedicated to being the best student they can be. Each one of them is genuinely ambitious and ready to work hard. They inspire me to be my very best every day.

My Project

The materials and supplies, I am requesting for my students, are going to help them explore the world around them. We need your help in getting these supplies into our classroom! The energy unit in 4th grade is one that always seems to excite my students. I want to be able to give them that hands-on experience with this educational kit from Carolina Biological.

The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of energy transformations.

By using this particular kit, the students will be able to investigate energy and its properties. We will use this kit to aide us in the process of becoming problem solvers and implementing their curiosity. As the teacher, I have done extensive research and reading on how to make science come alive for my students. Yet I truly need your support to make this a reality. Thanks!
