My Students

I teach 100 seventh graders. They are "too cool for school" and usually have to be coerced into learning. Once their interest is piqued, they never cease to amaze me with their ability to learn. They have the ability to become content experts and have even taught me a thing or two.

My students want their education to be relevant and mirror real-life experiences.

I want to give them the opportunity to shine. Together, we are a most excellent team.

My Project

My Life Science class emphasizes applicable skills and we frequently find ourselves building things, from giant cells to hydroponic systems. Soon we will be putting together a shed to house our hydroponic plant system. We have amassed quite a collection of tools in our adventures. At the moment, they are laying around the classroom in a disorganized mess. When we need to use them, we have to go on a scavenger hunt to find them.

With a new 5-drawer tool storage chest, we could put our tools away in the proper place after each use.

Students would learn the importance of organizing a work space and taking care of the tools with which we do our jobs. More importantly, putting the tools away would allow us to keep visitors to our classroom safe! Additionally we have accessories for our tools stored in plastic tubs. We need a shelf on which to put them.
