My Students

My students are always eager to learn. They inspire each other through engaging conversations and frequently seek opportunities to adapt their knowledge to new activities. During most of our lessons, we use text and technology-based programs as the primary sources of information.

My students are always searching for ideas to bring learning to life when they articulate connections between content learned and real-world applications.

However, the reality is that we don't always have materials and supplies to support project-based lessons that promote high levels of rigor and increased learner engagement.

My students are motivated and generally perform well on standards-based assessments. The challenge is stretching their thinking by engaging them with multiple sources of information using hands-on activities to demonstrate their learning by completing tasks that validate their ability to analyze, synthesize, and/or evaluate new instructional content.

My Project

Early exposure to science will play a major role in the future of STEM careers. My students are always eager to learn. The Anatomy Kits will serve as an additional resource to help them conduct comparisons, analysis, arguments, research, and other relevant, real-world tasks.

The daily excitement of learning is almost innate and contagious in my classroom.

My students are on the right track to becoming our future leaders as policy makers, educators, business leaders, and scientists.

These additional resources will increase collaboration and critical thinking, while allowing them to explore together using learning tools connected to real-world experiences. They will engage in academic discussions rooted in content specific vocabulary while using hands-on materials to motivate and stimulate creative thinking.
