My Students

I teach a very diverse group of children due to a large percentage of our students coming from the local military base. They come from different schools throughout the world with very different experiences and skill sets. Although I thoroughly enjoy such a diverse bunch of sweet kids, it is sometimes a challenging job to educate such a varied group.

My students benefit daily from DonorsChoose projects that have been previously funded and are so very grateful for the support this organization provides!

My Project

I have requested four simple machine sets for my third grade students. These kits will allow my students to do more than just see examples in a book. They will guide my students through the process of building and creating simple machines of their own!

I have requested four sets to allow my students to break into smaller groups so that each student can play a role in the hands on experience of building a simple machine.

Having four kits will allow my students to work in smaller groups but still provide the opportunity for teamwork and collaborative learning. These kits will make science fun and engaging!
