My Students

My students love science and the outdoors. They want to explore, investigate, experiment and invent, but they lack the financial resources at home and at school that provide beyond the basics.

Engaging experiences that are relevant and resources are what my students need to gain opportunities that will make them successful in and out of school.

My students and their families want them to do well in school, they just need opportunities. Help my students become future biologists, geologists, engineers, agriculturalists or whatever careers that interest them.

My diverse students are multilingual--English, Spanish, Mam, Qanjobal--and most come from working-class families. Many live with single parents, guardians, grandparents or in multi-household families. Regardless of their situation, their families say they want their kids to do better than they did.

My Project

Maps are fun to use and necessary in real life. My second graders will be learning some basic mapping elements, such as symbols, compass rose, labels and a keys to read and construct maps about their neighborhood and community.

Mapping skills are essential for our youth, especially in a technological era that that does more and more for them.

Students will use books about maps to research maps and learn how they are used. They will use dry erase markers to draw maps. They will use table-top maps and a globe to identify different locations. Finally, we will create school and community maps and laminate them.
