My Students

My campus is Title I and all my students come from low-income households with a variety of cultural backgrounds. My students are mostly ELL's, and despite the adversities they face, my students are engaged and demonstrate a willingness to learn every day. Many parents work two-three jobs to make ends meet. This limits the amount of time they spend at home and the educational experiences my students may have outside of school. My school was directly affected by damage from the recent tornado in Dallas, TX, which displaced some students and their families. I want to ensure my students have a fun and engaging field trip experience.

A love for science begins here in Pre-K!

My students love anything and everything hands-on and sensory. They are also motivated to learn and this experience will spark a new light in their brain. I know my student's learning will be enhanced with an educational field trip. Help me set a strong foundation and a love for science inside and outside of the classroom!

My Project

This project is for a field trip to the Dallas Perot Museum. This will give students an opportunity to learn about and experience science first hand. In our early learning curriculum, we discuss dinosaurs, bones, and fossils. At the Perot Museum, students will have the chance to learn the basic needs of dinosaurs, see, touch, and compare real and replica fossils, and learn about characteristics that helped them survive. Towards the end of the year we discuss insects and their life cycles.

At Perot, my students will get to develop an appreciation and curiosity for insects through live bug encounters and hands-on activities.

Students will also get the opportunity to examine live invertebrates and classify invertebrates. Help me give my students an opportunity to engage with the science content beyond the classroom.
