My Students

Our school’s students have a wonderful curiosity that makes my job as a science teacher such a wonderful experience. With so many classes and only me to teach science, I need to find creative ways to bring engaging and instructional online science resources to all our teachers. Finding cultural bridges between science and the arts allows me to better differentiate my instruction and lessons for all my students.

Our Title I elementary school has a diverse population of students who all qualify for free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.

My science classes are comprised of general education, English language learners, and special education students from many different cultures, all with a variety of learning styles. They are exciting to watch in action and all love to try and discover. So many times I'm overwhelmed by their competence and determination to learn and achieve.

My Project

My science students are a wonderful group of budding achievers. I have found that through art I can tap them to learn more science. We just received watercolors from a generous donor but watercolor paper we now need. Copy paper just doesn't work with watercolor paints. I also need the Astrobrights colored paper for their science/art project displays.

Flexible seating is also part of my classroom and the children love sitting in a "grown-up" chair.

So I'm requesting a desk chair that can be used in our science library. Sometimes the children just want a big chair and a book to relax and learn. This chair is small enough to fit in the library but big enough for someone to melt into.

I'm also requesting a great motivational Thomas Edison poster. I want my science students to remember that "mistakes" are experiments that prove what doesn't work!

Thank you for your continued support of my science students and me.
