My Students

I teach science to a wonderful group of seventh and eighth graders in New Haven, CT. My students come from a variety of backgrounds and family dynamics. Not only are my students trying to master many topics in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Earth Science; many are also English Language Learners!

Each one is eager to learn, explore and discover the world around them!

I am excited to help them explore the world around them and to share my love of science to everyone of my students!

My Project

I am requesting paper to supply various handouts to my students, guided notes, handouts for experiments, graphic organizers, etc. We also need pencils for my students to be able to take notes and folders to help them stay organized.

I need to supply my own paper (and I am almost out) and my students seem to always need a pencil everyday!

My goal is to be able to provide pencils to all of my students everyday, help them become organized (to no longer lose assignments), and to provide them materials everyday in class that will help them become better scientists.
