My Students

As a teacher in a low income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I continually look to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences that reflect their individual needs while also providing a flexible learning environment.

Many of my students are being raised by a single parent or in multi-family households and receive free or reduced price meals based on their socioeconomic status.

From the moment they enter my classroom, I work to develop a personal, respectful relationship, focusing on their potential and growth, and teaching them to recognize their potential and celebrate their successes.

My Project

Science is one of the subjects that peak a student's interest as early as elementary school, motivating them to explore the various disciplines in this vast subject area.

Most elementary schools no longer have the time or materials to foster this early interest in science, using text books instead of hands-on investigations for lessons because there isn't funding.

The egg incubator and supplies will allow students to experience the life cycle of a living thing instead of reading about it in a book. The students will have the opportunity to watch the embryo develop inside the egg. It will show them the beginning of a food chain and how it can impact the ecosystem.
