My Students

My students come from mixed backgrounds of single-parent, traditional family, mixed family, and foster or grandparent care. Common to all is the desire to be given the opportunity to explore and discover critical-thinking skills needed as they transition from being the students of today to the leaders of tomorrow. My students are ambitious, kind and ready to learn cross-cutting science and engineering concepts. Your donation will provide resources for them. We are currently working with inquiry-based labs and interactive notebooks. I would like to add more engagement activities to my classroom with the use of games.

My Project

My project is for a classroom set of the book Hidden Figures that I would like to read as a class in the classroom. I have hand selected a couple of books to read throughout the school year in my class with my students. I would love to have the students follow along on this one with their very own copy in their hand. This will improve the reading of all my students which will help them in every aspect of their life. I believe we are all reading teachers especially in schools were students come from a diverse back ground. We need to provide, encourage, and flame the fires of students who want to learn and read.
