Mrs. Davies from Parrish FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindling Our Future

Help me give my students the opportunity to learn and discover how amazing science is by providing tablets for educational purposes. These tablets will promote student engagement and provide unparalleled, unique learning experiences such as performing online dissections.

My Students

When people ask me what I teach, I do not answer that I teach science. I tell them that I teach students. The truth is that I teach so much more than just science. I teach my students to ask questions, explore, stand up for what they believe in, be kind, be responsible, believe in themselves, and to never give up on their dreams. Science just happens to be the way in which I choose to teach them these skills, in an effort to ultimately transform these young, spirited, curious adolescents into mature and productive members of society.

Bill Nye said "there's nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in science and engineering, for a better tomorrow, for all humankind".

The students I teach are our future doctors, engineers, climatologists, nurses, marine biologists, cancer research scientists, teachers, business leaders, parents of the coming generation, and so much more. They deserve the very best in education. They deserve love and support. They deserve people like you helping them reach their goals and change the world.

My Project

My students were raised in the age of technology. Many have cell phones and use social media, but very few come to me knowing how to compose an email, browse the internet for credible sources, or create a PowerPoint presentation. "How is that possible?", I wondered. The reality is my students have not been shown the power of technology through an educational lens.

Technology is the pencil and paper of our time.

Students can complete online simulation labs, perform dissections, conduct research, and more all at their fingertips. Technology has allowed education to blossom. Technology will never be able to replace educators. It does, however, allow us to provide our students with opportunities to learn that they wouldn't otherwise have.
