My Students

My students are seventh grade, Science Investigators. They love to explore the world and love learning about Science. My students are training for their future careers. They work hard every day and are excited about new challenges. They are constantly pushing themselves and exceeding my expectations.

I believe you learn best when you are actively engaged and having fun!

I believe that enhancing my classroom will help my students reach their true potential! I want to show them that people can be kind and generous. I believe in my students! Thank you so much for any donation! You are helping reach a student and it may change their lives.

My Project

The use of colored pencils, markers, highlighters, and gluesticks is almost a daily activity in my classroom, especially in science. I have students that would prefer a standing desk to sitting in a chair all class period. Students work together in groups to practice and to record modeled strategies, charts, models and graphs. What becomes a problem is that our colored pencils are years old, the glue never seems to last, and our pencil sharpener is barely holding on. When something goes awry, students know that they must leave their group, only be able to draw with a pencil or use broken crayons or colored pencils. Even though they are great about doing this, it is distracting for many of my students who have focusing issues and they miss important instruction form either myself or other students. By having new classroom instruction supplies, students will be able to avoid all of these problems and focus on increasing their learning!
