My Students

The students I teach this year are scheduled for regular comprehensive science class which means we'll be exploring the life, earth, and physical sciences with a heavy emphasis on the nature of science. One of my classes is an ESE Inclusion class. Twenty-two percent of my students are English language learners.

Inquisitive, generous, and eager to explore our natural world are just a few words to describe my Panthers.

Our school's student leadership team is hosting a canned food drive, and my first period brought in the most so far in the sixth grade! I am so proud of them and their caring attitudes toward others!

My Project

Providing my students with countless fun and safe opportunities for them to learn is of the utmost importance to me because we learn best if the presentation of information is meaningful and memorable.

What better way to make learning memorable and meaningful than playing a Jenga review game as a class with a giant tower of blocks!

The cases for the Amazon Fire 7's will keep them safe as students use them in classroom activities. I am so thankful that a Donorschoose donor funded the Amazon Fire7's! Cases will provide them a longer "life" in my classroom. The dust broom set will also keep our lab safe after conducting at-times messy experiments.
