My Students

I work in a small, rural PreK-8 school in Tennessee with some awesome kiddos. I teach 7th & 8th grade math and science because those are the greatest subjects! Middle school aged students are energetic, and they range in their growth rates with some students standing 4'8" tall and others standing 6' tall.

While they look quite different, all my 7th and 8th graders enjoy learning about real life math and science in a hands-on way.

I want to give them a year they will never forget.

My Project

We live in Tennessee. While it is not uncommon to have humid weather in TN, our classroom is extremely humid, especially when it rains outside. We have a heating and air conditioning unit that works fine, but you can literally feel water vapor in the air sometimes in our concrete classroom. While it does lend itself nicely to a science lesson about humidity, I worry it will cause the growth of mold or mildew. My students and I are extra sneezy on days that it is extra humid in there. The moisture also makes it where no posters, vocabulary words, or student work will stick to the walls for any extended amount of time. Some days my teacher chair and the student chairs are noticeably moist and the papers on our desks curl around the edges due to the humidity. I have requested a dehumidifier from my school with no results and cannot buy one with my classroom fund because it would take more than I have (leaving none for school supplies). Your help would be greatly appreciated!
