My Students

Hi, thank you for taking interest in my students. I'm a sixth grade science teacher in a diverse, low-income setting (high poverty area). I love when students learn through hands-on labs, activities, field trips and technology. Students learn better with experience and examples and I like to utilize that in the classroom. Every student deserves the opportunity to experience everything science has to offer. I appreciate all acts of kindness to fund "experiences" for my students. Thank you! Go science!

My Project

All students want to be able to learn just like the student sitting next to them. In a diverse school with many languages, there are challenges. Resources! We need diverse literature in our classroom. Having books about the solar system, matter, weather, and energy, in Spanish, are essential. Spanish ELL students need to learn in Spanish before they can learn in English.

Getting the Spanish literature into the classroom will boost confidence in our students.

It will also give the students a sense of pride and commitment to their work. They will feel safe that the classroom is diverse and they will know that their education is cared about.
