My Students

Everyday I am amazed by my students. The progress they have made this year is truly awe inspiring, despite the challenges that many of them face in and out of school. The year started with some push back about learning science because it was "hard" but after telling them that I believe in them, showing them different ways to learn science and doing fun projects, they know walk in excited and ask "What are we going to do today?"

Our school hosts students from over thirty countries and I have 15 students from other countries and 20 that speak other languages.

While our school is Title 1, my kids come with positive attitudes determined to create a better future for themselves. 7th and 8th grade is a crucial time for students to figure out their learning styles and attitudes, and to prepare them for high school. They are eager to learn, and I am eager to teach them!

My Project

The other day I wanted to do a lab with my students until I realized I did not have any graduated cylinders in my classroom to do that lab. It was then that I realized my science classroom needed a little bit of help and love so I can efficiently teach science to my students. Every time I do a lab with students, I see their eyes light up, curiosity is created and a love for learning is instilled.

Beakers, graduated cylinders, chemicals and other common lab materials with help me achieve that goal, to turn my students into scientists.

My classroom is very inquiry based. It helps drive their motivation and passion to learn. Having more science supplies available in the classroom will help with implementing more labs and projects. Dissections, microscopic viewings, chemical reactions and more are awaiting my students eager hands and minds!
