My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds from all different, and small, tight-knit, communities. Therefore, everyone in the school knows everybody. I teach at a 1A school, which is the smallest you can get in Mississippi. Most of the kids in our school receive free or reduced price lunch and cannot afford basic materials from the classroom. However, they always come with a positive attitude and are ready to learn. It makes it that much more special to get to know them, their interests, their hopes and dreams, and their goals for being successful!

The students are positive and hungry for knowledge in all of their classes.

This shows in their day-to-day demeanor, effort, and their all around positive attitudes and outlooks.

My Project

When teaching biology and anatomy, sometimes it is difficult for students to visualize certain processes and structures. With this diorama, students will be able to use a model to interpret how these processes, systems, and structures are working together cohesively. My students need a way to be able to see first hand how the human body is structured and how it works.

This project will make it possible for students to picture biology and anatomy in a whole new way.

Our state received new science standards for the year which involves a lot of modeling. This skeleton display will help us accomplish these standards, and help us excel at them.
