My Students

My students live in a disadvantaged area of our city, where 97% of my students get free or reduced-price lunch. Several of my students live in a homeless shelter. Many come from migrant families where they wake up before dawn to get ready for school because their families work in the fields. Many students rely on the breakfast, lunch, and weekly snacks provided by the school as their main source of solid nutrition. Even with all of their struggles, they are in very high spirits. They give you everything they have and don't ask for much, only love and attention. Their smiles every morning light up my heart and the hearts of those around them. The energy they express and their enthusiasm for learning are amazing. I could not have asked for a better group of students. They are the absolute best kids around. It is my mission to be their greatest supporter.

My Project

Children at my school do not typically have access to a wide variety of extracurricular activities. My goal with the STEM stations and kits I am requesting is to create a STEM workstation in my classroom to incorporate STEM skills as well as engage both my male and female students.

Students will work cooperatively to discover, build, and solve problems.

These materials will give my students immeasurable opportunities to learn and have fun through STEM! Working together on real life problems to create solutions on how to solve these issues. Collaborative conversations will have the students working hard on these science kits!
