My Students

I teach kindergarten at an elementary school in Ketchikan, Alaska. We are located on an island referred to as the First City. We are known as the Rainy Capital of the world as we typically get 200+ inches of rain a year.

This year I am blessed with an amazing group of Kindergarteners.

They are an energetic bunch of kiddos that are always eager to learn new things. They are little sponges that absorb every bit of information we can give them. They love hands-on learning.

As a teacher, I am always looking for fun and engaging ways to teach our standards.

My Project

I want to have the ability to show my students the life cycle of chicken eggs and bring to life (literally) our science curriculum. Being able to provide this real life process is an invaluable lesson that all students should get to experience.

All students need to be able to understand and apply the concepts, facts, evidence, and processes of life science.

With this incubator, my students will get to experience hands-on life science of chicken eggs. Getting to watch the incubation process as well as getting to watch their eggs hatch is a very exciting and personal experience.
