My Students

I love doing hands-on group projects with my students! My students can range from high flying students with straight A's to kids who are barely making it through. But, none of them realize how amazing biology is going to be until it's too late!

The students also enjoy being able to get out of their seat and actually "doing" science.

We are opening our minds to new ideas, revealing concepts about our everyday lives, sharing our thoughts, ideas, and opinions in class discussions, and learning in a whole new way! I want to challenge my students, and they rise to this challenge. Whether it's the good 'ol country boy or the shy girl in the back of the class, each student enjoys the time we have together to explore the world around us and see how life works in all places of the world.

My Project

These materials are extremely necessary to a functioning classroom. My students and I use most of these materials on a day to day routine.

We need these supplies in our classroom to make sure that every student has access to the material.

We need staplers and tape dispensers to help us maintain our interactive notebooks. We create foldables and notes that we need to put into our notebooks and the staplers and tape help us do this. We also need Stikkiworks clips and Command hooks to help us display the work we create. The walls are not very good to use tape and if we want to display work we need Stikkiworks clips and Command strips to make sure the work stays on the walls.
