My Students

The students in my class are sixth, seventh and eighth graders who attend a public, middle school in a large, urban school district. The students come from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and the majority of the students are from low-income households.

The students have all been identified as having special learning needs, such as auditory processing deficits and attention deficits, which can make it difficult for them to find success in a traditional classroom setting.

In other ways, they are like all students. They are funny, insightful, smart, and interested. They always rise above expectations when given enough time and support.

My Project

We do a lot of work in science class, but in order to get good data, you need tools that are in good working order. My students need digital timers to help us with many of our science experiments from calculating heart rate to measuring the relationship between distance, rate and time, to charting the changes in substances.

My students are constantly engaged in exploring our world with the tools of science.

We need batteries of various sizes to keep our existing scientific equipment running. The batteries will be used in our digital thermometers, Snap Circuits kits, remote controls for robots, cameras and GPS units.
