My Students

I have wonderful students who want to learn and thrive in a hands-on environment. The majority of my students come from low-income families and have troubled home lives. They love coming to my class, and I love sharing science and medicine with them to get them excited about the possibility of a future. Many of my students will continue to pursue careers in the medical field with great success.

I am blessed to teach motivated and talented young people who are the future of medicine.

I look forward to watching them grow and learn each and every day.

My Project

My students need the Tetrasource 300 power supply to be able to run electrophoresis gels to analyze DNA samples. This lab can be performed in all of my classes and provides students with the opportunity to work with a micropipette and analyze gels to match DNA from a crime scene.

The ability to analyze DNA by performing electrophoresis is a great opportunity for students.

I currently have all the materials required for this lab except for the power supply which runs the electrophoresis equipment. Please donate to my classroom so I can provide my students with this great learning opportunity
