My Students

My students come to school with a lot on their minds. They come in hungry, tired and insecure about what the day will bring. School is a safe place for them.

School is where they learn social skills, learn right from wrong and learn that there are people out there who care for them.

All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Some of our students come to school at 7 am and stay until 6 pm. Even with all this baggage my students are the most caring, most loving and most helpful kids I know.

My Project

The resource book Sciencesaurus, is an uncomplicated book for sixth graders. It is easy to read and understand, easy to locate topics and so advantageous for mastering all of the topics being studied. The glossary is especially helpful in comprehending new science vocabulary and has very detailed pictures that are very supportive in the learning process.

Sciencesaurus books are just what we need to enhance our science learning all year long.

By donating to this project, you will not only help to improve and increase my students' science vocabulary, but you will ultimately help them to increase their love for learning.
