My Students

Lincoln Park High School is a Title I public school located in Chicago. We are a 9-12 grade neighborhood school with 60% of our 2,300 students classified as economically disadvantaged. I work diligently to find connections between content and the daily interactions my students have with the world. I strive to provide my students with the skills necessary to think critically and solve the problems they face both in the classroom and in our diverse school community.

My students are curious, creative and eager to learn.

They come to Biology class from all different backgrounds, but with a common goal: to learn about and better understand the world around them.

My Project

Having an Elmo Projector in the classroom will allow students to present their work to their classmates, an important skill for any scientist. This gives students, who may struggle with reading and writing, an outlet to share their knowledge. Along with their creative concept maps and other daily work, students will be able to share their laboratory findings.

How exciting will it be to see students engaging in meaningful conversation about their lab findings while viewing the results with their peers.

This will help all students follow along in our class and small group discussions. By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
