My Students

Our students are high achievers who love to engage in discussion about science and the connections to the real world. We are located on the south side of Chicago and engaging with the environment is not always easy.

My students love to ask questions and often ask insightful ones that require some research outside of our curriculum.

They love to engage with technology, posting to our Google Classroom page, creating innovative digital products, and finding ways to research and explain their ideas.

They yearn to learn more and expand their worldview. Experiencing natural and built environments outside of our urban neighborhoods allows them to see new opportunities, problems, solutions, and careers!

My Project

My students frequently do labs and need to wash their hands and materials such as glassware! Having supplies like soap, tissues, and disinfecting wipes, will ensure that our classroom stays clean throughout the year.

There are times that students cannot do certain parts of labs or clean up after their group, because we lack soap.

I often try to conserve every drop, so this will help students take a more active role in cleaning up after their labs. This is not only helpful to me, but teaches personal responsibility.

Having clean glassware and other lab materials is essential to a functioning science lab!
