My Students

Have you ever had an interest in science and not known where to look?

I am a general education 4th grade teacher.

This is my 8th year at my school. This year my students are reading above grade level. My school is located in NYC and is made up of students from many different cultures and backgrounds. Many of the children in my class are English Language learners. My school is a Title One school and all of the children get free lunch and breakfast.

My Project

These books will help the children in my class to master the science curriculum. Through books, children can increase their scientific knowledge and develop a love of science. We will use these books to develop a background of the topic before preforming experiments.

Help us to develop a love of science and increase our scientific knowledge.

Scientific background will help the children in my class succeed in the future and develop as lifelong learners.
