My Students

My students are problem-solvers. They ask questions, create hypotheses, and perform experiments independently. They are eager to learn and to create change. With the appropriate resources and encouragement, all 350 of my science students can engage in hands-on, 21st Century learning that will prepare them for the bright, successful futures they deserve.

Approximately 95% of our students come from low-income backgrounds, and 90% of students receive free or reduced lunch.

They live in a community that has a myriad of fast food stores, but no grocery stores where they can purchase fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods. 98% of our students identify as coming from minority groups. Our school is an incredible innovation, turn-around school filled with amazing, deserving students. As a school family, we are committed to 100% of our students becoming college and job-ready.

My Project

Every year, the number of people going into STEM careers declines. The lack of diversity in careers involving science may serve to discourage many students from pursuing STEM careers, regardless of what imaginative, hardworking, critical thinkers they might be.

By encouraging scientific thinking and writing in journals, students are more likely to see themselves as scientists as they practice their STEM skills.

Journals allow students to record their problem solving and to position themselves as scientists. Further, journals contribute to rigor in class while also allowing students to reference the amazing work they have done, as scientists, throughout the year.
