My Students

I am fortunate to be a teacher in a school full of kind-hearted, hard-working students. Teaching in rural Montana can be a struggle sometimes as we have small budgets and sometimes limited resources. This doesn't deter my students' curiosity though and over the years, I have seen their interest in science grow. As I was going through my battle with breast cancer it was my students who kept me inspired and ready for work every day.

Science is meant to be a hands-on subject and it is through discovery that we shape the scientists of tomorrow.

In my classroom, I strive to make it as applicable to the real world as possible. Students engage in science on many different levels and my hope is that this excitement for science remains with them long after they leave this school.

My Project

Our old skeleton is currently missing many bones, has had a hard life, and is ready for retirement. Because of his delicate state, he does not get used in the classroom. Rather than getting to see the bones and their locations in the body in person, students must rely on pictures of skeletons.

Your donation will give students the opportunity to experience learning with a skeleton that they can touch and examine.

Students no longer will have to rely on pictures to learn about bones and their positions. As I restructure my curriculum for my anatomy and physiology class, my hope is that the knowledge that they discover extends beyond the classroom and into students' lives.
