My Students

I get to teach the best subject (Science) to 7th graders with diverse backgrounds! These students are just coming out of elementary school and are very eager to learn, but sometimes their background can get in the way. Some of the students don't have much, but they can still come to our school to have a great experience.

My goal is to help students become good citizens as well as gain an appreciation for how the world around them works.

We do this by keeping a positive culture but also by doing hands-on projects and simulations as well as having in-depth class discussions.

My Project

Many of these supplies like modeling clay, colored pencils, and card stock allows me to have more hands-on activities that students haven't been getting enough of since the pandemic started.

I also have great visuals of biology that help teach correct concepts that surround what is happening with the pandemic.

For example, I requested 3D models of cells to better teach my students about the basic unit of life.

Finally, I have requested basic supplies like pencils and colored pencils because most students lack basic supplies like these to be successful in any classroom.
