My Students

Hello! I have a combined class of wonderful, enthusiastic, and warm-hearted 4th graders from Paradise, California. We are currently housed by the kind people of Durham. We are a hard-working group of students located in rural Northern California.

The Camp Fire has disrupted the education of these wonderful children, and 90% lost everything in the fire.

And many of their grandparents, extended families, and friends lost their homes as well. The Camp Fire destroyed our community.

My goal is to provide a comfortable space for learning and growing as we build our lives back together.

Thank you for considering our project!

My Project

These fun science labs and incredible book sets will give me enough materials to develop stations for students to rotate through as we learn about how the Earth changes.

When you have engaging Science materials, it is easy to show students how fun Science truly is!!

With a little bit of organization, I can create a dynamic learning unit for all of 4th grade to study the way our Earth changes. Fun, interactive materials are the best way students can engage with curriculum. Tapping into their natural curiosity and desire to know about the world around them is wonderful. Thank you for helping me do just that!
