My Students

Science is a curriculum that emulates all others. Science class is the opportunity where students put their; reading, writing, math and social skills into effect. The students at my school strive to do their best and work hard; despite the challenges they face in their lives each day.

The students at our school truly have a love for learning and I'm thrilled to open this opportunity for them through the sciences.

My students live in a low-income area and overcome obstacles that some adults have never had to deal with and they do it with pride and valor.

My Project

These items will be used for our school's new science elective classroom. The materials chosen will give the students the access to think, act, and create like real scientists.

These materials will allow the students to explore the world of science through technology.

The tablets will give the students the opportunity to research and explore ideas further than within the classroom walls. We can do interactive lessons and units with the use of the tablets. The microscopes will allow the students to think and act like scientists. These tools will give them the feeling as if they're really working in a scientific lab. The science kits will be used for STEM activities and develop math, writing, reading, and social skills.
