My Students

I teach at a Head Start program located in a low-income/high poverty small town with limited resources available to the students and their families. Our classroom is located on the campus of Southeastern Louisiana University where many of the children’s parents are currently students themselves hoping to provide a better future for their children. We currently have 19 students in our class. Our program is federally funded.

The students in my class are filled with curiosity and a desire to explore and learn.

Even though they often face challenges in their lives, when the children are at school they are excited and ready for new experiences. My goal is to provide these experiences so that the students can gain an abundance of knowledge they can use to become successful.

My Project

The STEM Science Stations Complete Kit gives students a change to complete hands on experiments and engineering activities. The kit will provide an opportunity for the children to explore magnetism, motion and buoyancy.

Young learners gain knowledge through hands-on exploration!

The STEM Science Stations Complete Kit features an engineering activity to extend the learning and build critical thinking and problem solving skills. The students will develop an understanding of objects in motion, magnetism and magnetic fields, and the science behind buoyancy.

Funding this project will build a foundation for my young learners to begin an interest in and love for science.
