My Students

I teach high school marine science and biology. To engage the students, I try to offer as many hands-on activities as possible but to do this we need materials. Please support my students by helping us obtain the classroom supplies we need.

Our school community is a rural public high school in Hawaii.

Many of my students have mild and moderate disabilities. We are in a high poverty area with many students qualifying for free lunch. Many live with single parents, relatives or foster parents. Despite these challenges, my students are bright and many aspire to go to college.

My Project

To promote STEM learning, I want my students to participate in as many labs as possible. In order to do this, we have to have supplies to use in our lab. When I asked my biology students what sort of labs they wanted to do, dissection was overwhelmingly suggested. I explained to my students that we didn't have the materials but that I would try to get them. They are very excited at the prospect of increasing their science learning through hands-on lab activities.

Please consider making a donation to help my classroom.

These items will facilitate our labs which are more engaging for students and lead to greater retention. Participating in lab work is something the students really enjoy. My students are I are hoping you can help. Mahalo!
