My Students

My students have a passion and thirst for the world around them! They enjoy expanding their reach and allowing their curiosity to drive them to new heights. These guys and gals will really lead the way for their generation. I can’t wait to see what they accomplish when they come back to visit with their Nobel Prizes.

My Project

Students across the nation have significant deficits. Our school has a collaborative mission to help one another across the subjects to close those gaps. Students are really learning this year that science is best friends with all subjects-especially math and reading. Last semester our students read The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. We saw significant improvement in their writing skills and non-fiction text comprehension. This semester we are digging into Life and Earth Science where we look at how organisms survive, grow and change the Earth. The Martian-classroom edition is a great way to connect literacy and science! We would appreciate all your help!
