My Students

The students at my school have a hunger to learn and be engaged! The lack of funds prevents us from meeting the full potential of what a lesson could be. Kids have a desire to touch, observe, explore, and create!

My students deal with a wide range of circumstances at home and I emphasize a school is a safe place for them.

They all have unique personalities and it truly is a gift to have the opportunity to teach them!

My Project

My kids need engaging lessons to make learning fun. The materials in my project will be used for just that. I have asked for science tools that I will be able to supplement science lessons all year! My students will get to have the hands-on science lessons they desire so much!

My goal as a teacher is for my students to forget the struggles they face at home and focus on having fun while they are learning.

Right now, they view school as something they have to do. I want them to want to come to school because they want to keep learning more!
