My Students

We live by the Connecticut shoreline and there is a variety of small summer homes and larger more established neighborhoods. Parents are very involved and appreciate an engaging classroom.

Our town is very active in sports, music, and academics.

Our students love‚Äč anything that is a challenge and makes them more curious. They really are a joy to teach.

This age group wants to play games, create from their own ideas, and they love experiments. That's why more than ever, science should be fun and interesting.

My Project

My students this year are extremely excited to study science. They love to create and build things and are wonderful about asking curious questions.

Since we are studying energy this year, I have some great ideas on how to use these science toys so that everyone can have a chance to explore what is happening and track data from different factors that are impacting them.

For example, do different temperatures affect the rate of the bird's dipping, how about wind, cold air, warm air, etc.

I would be able to use these products for multiple years and a variety of experiments.
