My Students

I teach a very diverse group of kids in an independent research class. Students try to solve real world problems by creating products and conducting original research. It's a lot of fun because their topics range from interstellar space travel to the correlation between stress and academic performance to serial killers. I learn a lot from them every year and I am never bored.

These students love being challenged, so they often choose topics that have them conducting surveys, using a 3D printer, or working in labs.

It's an opportunity that keeps on giving because they often develop lasting working relationships with professionals in their chosen research field. With these contacts, the students often obtain internships and recommendations that really set them a part from others. I am so grateful for what these kids have taught me.

My Project

My students conduct an array of research projects over the course of a year. For some, they require access to very specific items, and a microwave would help many of the students this year and in future years. Sometimes students are conducting research, or sometimes students are creating actual products. Either way, the use of a microwave would serve many of the students with aspects of their projects.

Having a microwave in class would help more students work on their projects here at school rather than at home.

I like to give the students as much time in class as possible, so more time outside of school is spent with family and friends, something that I think my kids don't get enough of unfortunately.
