My Students

My students are explorers. They love our science class as we begin the school year with an AWE about the world and the life in it. We love investigating together how things happen and why they exist. We love our sharing our thoughts and making sure each statement is backed up with facts based on what we observe and experience.

It is my desire as the Science Teacher of these inquisitive and beautiful minds to provide them the best science class experience.

I wanted to fill in their hunger to learn science concepts and apply these to the real world.

This year is my first time to handle just once subject and that is Science. So the classroom assigned to me right now is in need of more science model, equipment, tools, materials that will help my kids see the amazing world of science. So I am asking for support from good-hearted individuals to help me in this cause of making my classroom a Science Classroom for my "little researchers and scientists". Thank you very much.

My Project

Through these tools and equipment we may acquire, the students will have hands-on experience as to how research and investigation are put into action. This project will help students be more motivated and more engaged.

These apparatus such as the microscopes will help students look into things that can't be seen in the naked eye.They will have the experience of seeing amazing things beyond the natural sight.

The beakers and test tubes will help them to see the need to be accurate with measurement wen it comes to combining certain substances.

Through the use of these tools and equipment, they will be given the real experience of applying all the safety rules we were discussing about when using certain tools in a lab activity.
