My Students

I teach a large classroom of 10- and 11-year-olds with a variety of intellectual needs. My students will be focusing on General Science activities.

Although economically challenged, they are each excited about exploring the world of science in a classroom/lab setting.

These kids are deserving of the opportunity to excel in all they do. In order to accomplish this goal for science, we ask for your assistance in providing the materials needed to focus on our experiments. It is vital to have the appropriate tools necessary in order for all of the students to learn and succeed in this curriculum.

With your help my kids will look forward to each day, anticipating a whole new world of fascinating experiments that teach them about the world they live in, a world of surprising information that will also help spur their thirst for knowledge.

My Project

As our district moves away from science specialists to classroom teachers teaching science, my goal for the next school year is to fine-tune my craft by focusing on specific ways that I can bring understanding to all my students. This is a great opportunity for me to grow as a science teacher and for my future 5th graders to grow as students in a multicultural classroom.

I want my students to LOVE science and get excited about the world around them!

We teach and learn in Oklahoma City and most of my students have limited access to the great outdoors at school and at home.

We will be learning about the stars and oceans. Global warming and what it means to live in our world.

With the chart and stand I will be able to expand on the class ideas and find a permanent location for thoughts and ideas. I will make their ideas seem important which is important in the growing minds of children.
