My Students

I teach a diverse range of 7th and 8th graders. I have students that require remediation as well as those that need enrichment. My students are incredibly motivated and persistent in their learning, especially in science. It is my goal to foster an appreciation for scientific inquiry while relating science and technology to the everyday and diverse lives of my students.

I am trying to better reach my students who represent an array of learning styles and needs.

It is my goal to increase the amount of science equipment so that we can better achieve STEM standards and be college and career ready!

My Project

My students are very excited about this project! During a recent trip to visit a college, students were exposed to an advanced lab. Students expressed a strong interest in getting lab tables.

It is very important that my students use class time to work collaboratively and learn the skills necessary to succeed in high school and college.

These lab tables will be used for daily, collaborative projects and tasks. The tables will allow for more safe lab exercises, as our current tables are not as durable and easily move.

The tables will improve the appearance of our lab and reinforce a sense of professionalism for students to engage with science as scientists would.
