My Students

Thanks to Donors Choose, my students has had an exceptional year of growing. Both my students and I have shown growth and improvement in the past year. Thanks to the creativity that I brought to them this year, they now hold me accountable and with higher expectations towards their projects and assignments.

My students all come from very diverse backgrounds, and of all different cultures .

Some of my students come from shelter home, foster homes and have not the opportunity to experience a stable environment or classroom, but yet they're still eager to learn and are still asking questions like " Ms. Allen, what we learning today?" or "Ms. Allen, "How are we doing a lab for this standard." I just want my students to have the best educational experience as possible.

I do my best with making my middle school science class hands on and I am constantly on the move and have a "listening ear" for new ideas or better approaches. I want continually to challenge myself as a teacher and challenge my scholars to become exceptional learners.

My Project

I would like to have my students have more of a chance at using technology. I would like to implement more technology into my lessons but the lack of availability takes that creativity away. By helping donate to computers for my students, they now will be able to partake in virtual labs for small groups. Meaning, for students that need a more smaller or one-to-one assistance with mastering the standard, an online lesson will be beneficial. Also having computers will give me access to implement science stations for reviewing and for exploring my students knowledge creativity. Having computers is another way to reach all my diverse students needs.
