My Students

I instruct an enthusiastic group of students from the inner city of Chicago. My students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, but many of them come from homes where they are the caretaker for their younger siblings. Many of my freshmen students are coming from middle schools where science was not a priority and not offered as a subject.

Despite the obstacles faced at home, at school, or on the journey between the two, my students arrive to class with a hunger for knowledge.

My Project

Having a model of the human skeleton will help students envision what is going on inside their bodies and what gives the human body its shape. Combined with models of other animal skeletons, students will be better equipped to engage in a discussion about human evolution and how humans have a biological relationship with other animal species. My students will be able to engage in intellectual discourse as we discuss the human body and its homologous structures. The life size skeleton will bring science to life for my students and help to make the content accessible. This accessibility will create opportunities for students to learn, play on their curiosities, and envision solutions to every day problems.
