My Students

I teach Middle School Science, Earth Science, Biology, and Chemistry to students in a rural setting. They are enthusiastic, eager to learn new things, and willing to go the extra mile to learn new and exciting things in Science.

Many of my students came in to the year stating how they didn't like Science.

They hadn't been exposed to hands-on opportunities for quite a while. We have been working on changing that, and I can see their attitudes changing as they now enjoy Science!

My Project

The science department has been left to deteriorate over the past several years. Our chemicals are in sorry shape, if we even have what we need. Our equipment is shabby and falling apart, and we are doing the best we can to get by for now.

We need to provide up-to-date chemicals and equipment for our current and future students so they can learn to love science once again.

This is a process and will take time, but there are a few things that would make learning easier for our students if we could get them sooner than later. Please Help!
