My Students

For the 2019-2020 school year, I am teaching 7th- and 8th-grade student scientists who are in a small group classroom environment. I love teaching science and differentiating instruction to ensure all of my students are learning scientific concepts, participate in enjoyable hands-on and interactive activities, and have an overall feeling of success in our science room. In addition to differentiated learning, I want to provide my classes with 1:1 Chromebook technology to help fully immerse them into 21st-century scientific and digital learning. My students will experience, engage, explore, and fully develop themselves as student scientists through technology in the classroom. Our future is in their hands. Their decisions today will shape their paths for tomorrow. THEY are the scientists of TOMORROW! Let's help them get a head start on this experience. Think like a scientist and BE a scientist with the necessary classroom technology to do so. Your support will help me complete my mission to provide them with the ideal digital science learning experience. We are getting closer and closer to our 1:1 classroom technology goal!!

My Project

Happy New Year!! Welcome and thank you in advance for taking the time to donate and support my students.

My students are in the Horizon Program (ASD) which is an 8:1 classroom environment.

Your contribution to our Chromebook project would greatly impact the students by providing them will full access to the technology aspects, videos, simulations, and models within our science curriculum. I want my students to be fully immersed and experience 21st century digital learning first hand. My student scientists will be motivated, excited, engaged, and will foster a love for science! These students have a strong desire to explore science. Thank you for your generous gift!
