My Students

All my students attend a public school in an urban environment. They are smart, energetic, and always eager to learn. Their favorite subject is science because of the different experiments we do, but they also enjoy working with their math tools and reading in large groups.

All my students are considered low income and qualify for free breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

Many of my students speak a first language that is not English and are English Language Learners, and some have individualized educational plans because they have special learning styles.

Despite these obstacles and hardships, we are one big community inside of our classroom, and there is nothing better than seeing smiles on their faces during my lessons because they strive to succeed.

All of my students stand out in their own creative ways. We all enjoy getting to know each other throughout the school year!

My Project

Our students really enjoy getting their hands on materials to really help them understand the material being taught. We will be able to use aluminum foil to teach students about transparency, translucent, and opaque. I will be able to use large ziplock bags so I can organize materials for our science experiments ahead of time so when it's time to actually begin the experiment, we will not have to waste time passing out necessary materials and they will be able to just get started. Using magnetic hooks will help teach our students about magnetism and the different poles we have on planet Earth.
