My Students

I teach 9th-grade science in the heart of DC. I have 75 to 80 students across all my periods. My students range from logical curious to creative. Their creativity is truly an inspiration. But one thing that brings a smile to all my students is when they can do hands-on activities and be active while doing projects. They have missed doing hands-on activities with classmates during virtual learning, so I make sure they have opportunities this year to engage in hands-on activities with their peers in the class.

Our school is 100% free and reduced lunch, and our families come from low-income households and a variety of backgrounds such as Black, Latinx, and other minority backgrounds.

I want to show my students that they can pursue STEM and bring their talents to the field to have more representation in the STEM fields, no matter their background. Despite all the challenges, my students know that knowledge and pursuing higher education can lead to a better and brighter future.

My Project

My students have let me know again and again how much they enjoy working in groups and collaborating with their peers during projects.

During projects, these whiteboards can be used to draw out their ideas and collaborate with their classmates.

Individual whiteboards also allow students to practice problems and build a culture where students have fun while collaborating and presenting their voices in creative ways other than paper and pencil. Students especially enjoy using whiteboards during science jeopardy lessons and using the boards to express themselves by doodling and creating art.
