My Students

I have students from different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Some of my students will be the first in their families to go to a college or a higher learning institution. They need motivation and orientation on what to do once they graduate. My purpose is to keep them always engaged in their learning and getting them interested in all types of sciences. By doing so, it will allow them to develop an affinity with the subject to further their studies and interest after they have graduated from high school.

My Project

Hurricanes have caused my students and their families to suffer damage on their homes and lives. Since Maria, we are starting to see an increase of students to our area that evacuated Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated their homes. These students have almost nothing and I need to be able to provide lessons they can benefit from.

I am getting an increase of students that do not speak English.

I would like to get interesting STEM materials to help these students learn science without needing to speak English. The Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates, and Microscope Slides will help students learn different science concepts with visuals without the need to write or speak in English. Our students are already at a disadvantage with their socioeconomic backgrounds and being ESOL. Our lack supplies puts them at a further disadvantage. Please help me bring in the materials we need and help my students succeed.
