My Students

My school services the majority of students grades sixth through eight in Union County. Union County is a rural area with minimal manufacturing and economic development. Most of my students live at or below the ​poverty level and many come from broken homes. Several have IEP's and 504's. In order to help these students succeed, teachers need the necessary supplies.

My students enjoy completing projects and hands-on activities, but most can't afford the needed supplies.

The students have the desire to learn, but lack the funding to buy ma Please help me to help these students become interested in STEM!

My Project

This will help students to have creative lighting that does not bother their eyes. Lots of students get headaches from florescent lights. Having LED rope lights will help these students to focus and have a softer less harsh light. This will eliminate some of the headaches that students get. Students that have learning disabilities often benefit from having lower levels of light as well as different colors of light.

This project will let students see the difference between plant, animal, and bacterial cells.

By having a hands on model to manipulate and observe the difference. Students have to learn the difference between a prokaryotic cell and a eukaryotic cell, having full sized models will help the students to learn the difference.
