My Students

Our favorite chant is: "In our class we try and try again"! My students come from a high poverty school district where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. The challenges that face them at home are almost insurmountable.

Curious, excited, and willing to work hard, my students love coming to school!

They thrive in a creative environment where they help set their learning goals and are provided with multiple ways to learn and solve problems. Hard work is rewarded and relationships are built and nourished. My hope is to instill in each student a lifelong love of learning through hands on science.

My Project

I am excited to bring the excitement of learning about frogs to my students! Students will be introduced to the life cycle stages of a frog by setting up a frog habitat with tadpoles provided through your donation!

Capture the joy of raising frogs by providing my students with a once in a lifetime hands-on science project!

By donating to my project you will allow me to provide rich writing opportunities sparked by real life observations, the students will be able to draw life-cycle charts as they experience the life-cycle of a frog through observation. They will get to care for and raise tadpoles. Instead of reading books and answering questions they will be setting up the habitat, observing the tadpoles, and making journal entries as they learn. My students will become docents as they present to the other classrooms what they learned, using pictures, videos, slideshows and drawings of their experience. Please make a difference in my students lives by fostering a love of science! Together we can!
