My Students

My students are an amazing group of kids. They wonder about the world around them. Some have never even left the state. They want to know more. When we are able to get technology, they seek out and explore many different research topics. They want to learn more and nothing will stop them.

They are some of the most caring people I have ever had the chance to work with.

They are compassionate and love helping everyone around them. They care because they want to see change in the world.

My Project

These materials will be used to accompany out science units. Often times we tried to do the experiments, but find that we don't have the materials or it'll cost a lot of money to gather them, and we don't get the opportunity to do the experiments.

With these materials we will be able to make mock eye balls to understand how the eye works, create model cars and we will building working circuits to light our bulbs.

These materials will help all students learn how fun science can be and help prepare them for the rest of their lives. Hands on experiments shows the kids that they can fail, but not give up.
