My Students

My students attend a Title I school in the town of Wetumpka, Alabama. My students come from very diverse backgrounds. The majority of the students in my class come from low income neighborhoods. While the parents of my students try to provide as many resources as possible, many are simply not able to provide all that is needed in today's world. Providing more resources to these students would open up a world of new opportunities for them to be successful in the world today!

My Project

Just think! What if each child could dress up like a scientist with a real lab coat and goggles? Just think how it would inspire them! Just think, it might make them want to pursue the role! These lab coats and goggles will be used daily during science time to become the scientist! They will ask questions, gather information, make hypothesis, conduct experiments, and keep records as well as share the information with others! How amazing would that be, just think!

Just THINK!

If you could have been a scientist in school, what would you have been today? Help me to inspire my 2nd graders to dream big!

The headphones are a must have to continue with individual lessons on the chrome books. Headphones don't last forever due to the small wires in the cords. Please help us replace our class set of headphone!
