I work in a Title I school with a large population of students who struggle with poverty. My students range from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. In the community I work in, there is a large population of Native American students. I thoroughly enjoy the mix of cultures and strive to promote cultural diversity in my classroom.
Besides coming from a wide variety of backgrounds, my students all differ in their academic abilities.
I try to make sure that my teaching style meets all of their needs, but finding resources to meet all their needs can be difficult.
I believe the children in my class are natural scholars, and when given the right tools they are motivated to become enthusiastic and self-motivated learners. However, one of our biggest challenge for maximizing their potential for success is funding for supplies and other resources to provide an efficient learning environment.
Through hands on science experiments students will learn valuable scientific processes, develop important skills, and ignite their love for STEM!
Scientific thinking is a must for future student success as they learn critical thinking and problem solving skills. This is a great way to bring in real-world skills and engagement. With these supplies we will be able to explore the world of science hands-on and develop a lifelong love of science through experimentation.
