My Students

My students walk through the door every morning with a positive attitude, love for learning, and eagerness to begin a new day! I want them to know that they are capable of great things and that they can be anything they want to be. They are mathematicians, readers, authors, scientists, historians, and explorers. But in a noisy world, I want them to know that most of all, they are heard.

I work in a large school where the backgrounds, abilities, and needs of my students are extremely diverse.

Some of my students are living in poverty, while others are still learning English. Some are reading many levels above grade level, while others have behavior struggles. However, one thing rings true for all of my 22 students - they love learning and they want to be the very best version of themselves. My students set personal and academic goals for themselves and they work extremely hard every year to achieve their goals.

My Project

Students learn best when their experiences are hands-on and when they can make connections to the outside world. I want to make sure my students are engaged and excited about learning life cycles this year.

What better way to do this than observe hatching eggs inside our own classroom?!

Many of my students have never seen a life cycle occur from beginning to end and this would be the perfect opportunity for them to observe it first hand.

We will receive the eggs in the beginning of April and will observe them for about 21 days until they hatch that same month.
