My Students

My students are mostly minority students and most of them come from a low-income family background. They are very active and enjoy coming to school and learning science.

They are always ready to learn new skills and explore new opportunities but the unavailability of resources makes it hard for them to understand some of the abstract concepts that I teach, therefore the need to explain the concepts in ways that makes it real, captivating and interesting becomes imperative.

My students enjoy completing class projects that involve hands-on experiments, programming, art and research which helps them express their understanding of chemistry concepts in their own way by creating new meanings to their discoveries.

My Project

My project is designed to help my students get some food items that would help them stay healthy. My students need food items like Frito Lay variety pack, classic mix, popcorn, slim Jim, and crackers and juice for healthy living. Some of my students don't have enough food and juice to keep them healthy and interested in school. Therefore, I need help in providing them with necessary food items to help improve their wellbeing.

Research shows that food is the fuel necessary to get through a normal day.

Calories in food provide energy to carry out regular day-to-day activities. Without an adequate amount of this energy, students may fall asleep in school or lack the energy to pay attention to an entire day of classes.

That is why I need your help to provide my students with healthy snacks and food like Frito Lay variety pack, classic mix, popcorn, slim Jim, crackers and juice that would help motivate them and also improve their academic performances.
