My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds. Our school often has the greatest ethnic diversity of all the schools in the state. The majority of students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our school encourages project-based learning, especially those activities that promote the development of 21st-century skills.

Like most kids, my students thrive in a learning environment in which they are actively engaged and challenged.

Our school encourages technology-based learning which typically prepares students for high demand professions, but also has a side effect of increased screen and seat time. I like incorporating technology activities but also want to keep my classes physically active and provide supportive learning environments.

My Project

I want my students to be informed citizens that can collect, measure, and analyze data about their classroom lab activities and the world around them. Throughout the year, my students conduct experiments where they collect data, such as Balloon Rocket launches and measuring speed of Newton Cars. After collecting all of their data during experiments and labs, they will need calculators to help them perform statistical analysis.

My students need the proper tools to help them increase their numeracy.

My students are future thinkers and creators and they deserve to have the tools necessary to develop and build their skills in data interpretation and analysis.
