My Students

Our school was damaged by an EF-3 tornado in October 2019, and we all had to move to another building after that. Since then we are in the process of rebuilding our classroom. In the beginning, we didn't have any teaching materials, but we still continued teaching with limited resources and students were still be able to be engaged. In my Environmental Systems classroom, more than 70 percent of my students passed their district-given final exam, and I am so proud of my students!

Most of my students are from families of lower socioeconomic status.

Through taking an environmental science class, students are gaining knowledge that will not only help them get a science credit to graduate, but also understand what is happening in the world around them. As I listed the materials in this project, we need all of them to keep our classroom smooth and successful!

My Project

With this project my students will be able to practice fully in their Environmental Systems and Astronomy class.

In my classroom, students work on projects and they do hands-on activities and lab regularly.

We need resources and science materials to practice and understand science methods.

For an example, when my environmental systems students work on making a poster about nitrogen cycle they would look for rulers, they need glue-stick, they need poster paper.

And when we study world's human population we need to know which 2 countries have billions of people and we want to see these countries in the world map. That's how learning can not be completed with out proper resources and can be fun with it!
