My Students

Our students come from diverse backgrounds. Many of them qualify for Title I services. They come from different social and cultural backgrounds. Some do extremely well academically while others struggle and have deficits that put them far below their grade level peers. One of our biggest frustrations is that many of our students don't get to experience things outside of their own neighborhoods. We have many great ideas for activities and labs, but we lack the necessary resources to implement them.

My Project

When I came to this school this year, all the material and equipment from past years had been trashed. I had nothing to work with.

My students love doing things hand on, however, I do not have the equipment or the funds to make their wishes of many hands on activities a reality.

Everything my students have done up to this point has been provided from my own pocket. These materials will allow my students to go above and beyond where they can go now. They will be able to see topics we discuss unfold right in front of them!
