My Students

The students at my school are eager to learn and enjoy discovering new things in science and math. They love being challenged and competing in various competitions.

The students attend a Title 1 school, and come from low-income backgrounds.

Most of the students are being raised by their grandparents due to dissolved homes.

Students are exposed to limited resources at school as well as their home environment.

As the students express enthusiasm when they are exposed to a new lesson or goal, the look of excitement is priceless!

My Project

The Walter 50 Series Binocular Microscope will be used for learning about plant, and animal cell parts, cellular division, and their components. Students will label and draw plant, and animal cell parts, as well as the viewing the process of cellular division.

Students will be able to recognize characteristics of plant and animal cells.

Students will be introduces to other microscopic organisms in nature, as well as the chemical make-up of living cells.

A microscope aids the students to understand how microscopic organisms function in nature. It enables the students to understand multi-cellular and uni-cellular organisms and how they are compared to each other.
