My Students

Approximately 700 unique 7th and 8th graders attend my middle school. We are a diverse population with a variety of backgrounds, cultures, experiences, and academic strengths. 99% of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch, 1 in 7 of our students receives special education services, and 16 different languages are spoken on our campus. Many of our students come from technology-poor environments, and it has become clear that it is the school's responsibility to support students in becoming ready for the technology requirements of higher education and the workplace.

While every student is one-of-a-kind, all students share the desire and enthusiasm to experience their education through current technology tools.

My students are hard workers who strive to be and do their best. My students walk in daily with a smile on their face, ready to face the difficulties of science that I throw at them. Though the topics we discuss are difficult for them, they still strive to be successful.

My Project

Our classroom would benefit immensely from the donation of 7 Chromebooks. Students use technology in class often to research for science projects including 3D Earth model choice projects, continental drift/plate tectonics Bobblehead projects, Adopt-a-Mineral projects and many more including the student's favorite, the volcano choice project.

In the past, students have created eye-witness video interviews with classmates, recorded an original song about their project, and researched facts about their project, all while utilizing technology.

Unfortunately, the pilot program which allowed us to have Chromebooks in our classroom has ended, leaving our school with a limited number of laptops to share among teachers which is even increasingly difficult while administrating required tests. The addition of these Chromebooks to our classroom would be monumental in student's success on their projects and research.
