My Students

My students are the epitome of strength and courage because they get up each day facing personal challenges in life but yet they push forward to get to school each day with bettering themselves and their situation. We find that in lower socioeconomic areas, the surrounding business don't enter into partnerships with schools that are within these areas because there is an unspoken of perception that these children are unappreciative of what they have.

Students build their appreciation for education and life based upon their positive experiences within the educational setting.  Majority of the children I work with live in horrific situations, neglect (medically and physically) and then have to enter into a classroom that is less than appeasing to their mental pallet.  

As a teacher from the heart, I find it hard to focus and guide students who have to leave chaotic situations at home and come into a classroom that is often disorganized because they lack the proper resources to make the student environment comfortable and inviting.  With continual budget cuts in education, the resources for presenting students with a stable, clean and organized environment that is conducive to learning and boosting self confidence is rapidly declining.

My Project

Science is about a whole lot more than reading concepts and to sum it up we believe that science is a way of helping the brain grow in finding new knowledge and helps us defeat our curiosity of how the world develops and works today. This project will give my set students ownership of their learning.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement through hands-on learning.

These materials will help my students experience Science in a more concrete manner which will build their comprehension and understanding scientific concepts.
