My Students

What do you remember the most about science class? It's probably the cool experiments you performed in class. I want my students to remember that too! With the proper lab equipment, my students will have unlimited possibilities for what they can experience in a lab.

I teach fifth and sixth grade science in an low-income school in Louisiana.

I teach at a charter school that aims to empower our students to live happy, healthy lives with unlimited possibility. With our extended school year and hard-working teachers, we are committed to making our students reach their maximum potential. Our students are brilliant and they deserve the best resources to prove it.

My Project

My students are capable of being great scientists, and I believe that investing them in pursuing a science education long-term starts now. I want my students to have the proper equipment in order to give them an authentic scientific experience in class. Not having the proper equipment limits the type of experiences my students can have in the classroom. Not only would these lab aprons help my current students, they would also serve students for years to come.

Your donation to my students would allow my brilliant students to experience science in a way that they will certainly never forget.

By donating to my students, you will be supplying them with an amazing resource that they would not be able to access otherwise. You will be ensuring that my students continue to be excited about learning and get the opportunity to expand their experiences in the classroom. Thank you!
