My Students

I teach at a high-poverty turnaround school in Mississippi. With that being said, I also teach some of the most kind and loving students that I have ever met. Many mornings my students come in the door carrying burdens too big for such little people, but they know at school they are in a safe environment where they can be kids.

They come through the hallways with smiles and pep in their step.

Our school does not lack willing and excited scholars. What we do lack is resources. As a 1st grade teacher, my students need technology, experiment supplies, and field experiences.

My students persevere daily, through their struggles, with a super positive attitude!

From the moment they walk into the classroom, I focus on their potential and growth. My goal is to provide students with a loving and safe environment. I want each student to know that they are important. Their joy for learning makes me look forward to coming to work each day.

My Project

Many of my students have never seen a duck, chicken, goose or quail up close. We need an Incubator hove-bator circulator so the students can watch the process of a developing bird and the changes they go through. This specific incubator has technology that will allow for me to leave at the school on weekends and not have to worry about turning the eggs to make sure they develop correctly.

After the birds hatch we will look at the different attributes of the animals and the students can ask themselves why they are so different.

This experience will be life changing for many of them.

With more hands-on activities, I will be fostering a love for science and learning. This project would significantly help my students' understanding of the life cycle. Giving low-income students access to new technology is an investment in their future. The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of and competency in a real life setting.
