My Students

The students in my rural elementary school come from diverse backgrounds. Our school is located in a military town and the students we serve fluctuate frequently. They are kind and maintain Mustang pride and integrity in all they do. Their confidence and personality is exactly what this world needs!

These students are dedicated and determined to improve their education.

Our student community is currently divided in half in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Their homes, community and family have really banded together to move forward with everyday life and ensure as much normal routine as possible into their daily lives. They are compassionate leaders for tomorrow's future.

My Project

Please help my students make learning science fun and meaningful. These materials will allow students to view the human body systems around the room on posters to get a better understanding of their learning. They will be able to use learning kits and microscopes to learn about cells and create their own cells with the cellular molds.

Science experiments are always the best part of science.

Just imagine inspiring the next scientist in my classroom walls! Students will learn to take their heart rates, make models of the lungs and hearts, and measure their own digestive system with the aide of hands on learning kits.
