Our favorite chant is: "In our class we try and try again"! My students come from a high poverty school district where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. The challenges that face them at home are almost insurmountable.
Curious, excited, and willing to work hard, my students love coming to school!
They thrive in a creative environment where they help set their learning goals and are provided with multiple ways to learn and solve problems. Hard work is rewarded and relationships are built and nourished. My hope is to instill in each student a lifelong love of learning through hands-on science.
Your donation will make a difference in my students’ lives by providing them with a hands on science activity where they may interact with a butterfly environment.
Students will raise caterpillars to butterflies and release them into a tent full of flowers that they grew.
Your donation will be used to help purchase the caterpillars to teach the students about the lifecycle of a butterfly.
Students will study about butterflies and flowers. They will plant and grow flowers, put the flowers into a tent where the they can observe, document, and interact with the butterflies. I am always amazed as I watch my students become gentle observers of nature! Because of your donation, my students will have the opportunity to become lifelong lovers of nature and science!
