My Students

Our school is located on the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland. We are a Title I school with a high percentage (approximately 70%) of students living at or below the poverty level. Our school is a small, rural community school with fewer than 400 students in grades 4-8.

Despite the many challenges my students face, they are eager to learn.

My students are always super excited to come to my class, and I am eager to present them with thoughtful, engaging science content. Science is best learned in context, by doing and experiencing things. DonorsChoose.org helps make this happen.

We are small but mighty. We have a lot of school spirit, and it really is a great place to spend my time. We are very active in the community and focus on building positive relationships both in and outside of the school setting.

My Project

We are approaching the middle of the school year and my students are working hard on their science skills and knowledge. Science is hard work and we need a lot of supplies to accomplish our goals. This project will provide refresher supplies to get us through the remainder of the school year. We need all the basics like pencils, paper, folders, binders and incentive items like mints and composition books. We also need to keep our classroom clean so the wipes will come in handy! We are a very environmentally conscious school, so I've chosen recycled items where I could. Donorschoose.org makes magic happen in my classroom!
