My Students

I work in a middle school teaching 7th and 8th grade science at an inner city school. My students are highly inquisitive and love learning science! We work everyday trying to learn as much as we can and try to keep the magic and excitement alive (which can be difficult with middle school children.) One of my goals is to encourage them to study science through high school and hopefully into college.

A lot of my students have goals of being doctors, nurses, architects, ect.

My goal is to encourage them and help them achieve these goals! Let's keep enabling the love for learning in our students!

My Project

This class set of magazine subscriptions will allow the students in my classroom to bridge the gap between what they learn in the classroom to how this relates to the world around us.

The kids in my classroom love to learn but they often think a career in science is out of their reach.

I want to show them that there are many branches of science they can work in, many different people who work in science, and that no matter what your background is, you can be successful.

I'd love to have this resource to help enrich student learning in my classroom. Not only does this resource allow student to see science in the real world but this also enhances literacy in science and it also enhances reading comprehension skills that can be utilized across multiple contents.
