My Students

I recently discussed with our principal how it's fortunate our students ask many interesting questions and how they stay curious about the world around them. They're eager to find reasons as to why things in the world happen and they truly enjoy sharing their thoughts. It's been a few months working with them and I'm still happy to say they continue to have that enthusiasm for science!

My students are full of energy, they're curious, and they're a strong-minded group of individuals living in a neighborhood that doesn't support that about them yet.

Through the excitement of having a science class at their school, I want them to have the necessary tools that are used in the science world so they can best nurture that natural curiosity through hands-on activities.

My Project

I am working on raising money for science lab tables, but would also want to start raising money for the stools that would go with these tables!

These students deserve the appropriate tools to support their science learning.

I want to continue supporting the curiosity they have in the classroom by providing the items necessary for a science lab.

As we continue through the rest of the 2018-2019 school year, they are growing mentally and physically. I have tables and chairs that are best fit for 4th graders, but I have 7th and 8th graders. I cannot settle for that and I going to keep working at getting the best fit materials for them.
