My Students

My students are eager learners. They are creative and excited about learning. They especially like Science and find it so interesting. They love hands-on activities and challenging projects. They come to school ready to learn new things and grow academically.

My students love learning, however they all learn differently.

I incorporate different strategies, group projects, and small groups to ensure the students' needs are met. I believe the project that I am trying to get funded will address all students' abilities.

My Project

This material will add to our curriculum and enhance the material that we use in the classroom. I hope to make Science as interesting as possible. I want my students to be engaged and inquisitive about Science. These books will allow us more interesting information about Science while improving their reading skills. I hope to make our Science class interesting and fun. The world around them is so amazing, and there is so much for them to learn. I want to create a learning environment that makes them want to learn more about the incredible world that they live in.
