My Students

My students are 40 amazing survivors of Hurricane Harvey, which hit us at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. They went through traumatic stress when their neighborhood flooded for days and drastically displaced them from their homes, and even their school.

My students are reaching for the stars in their love for math and science.

They are 7-8 year old children that have experienced things that some people can only imagine. Despite it all, they walk into the classroom with smiles on their faces and ready to learn. I am truly honored to be their teacher and always look forward to my time with them.

My Project

My students need different weather tools to identify, observe, and record the weather. We will use the anemometer to measure the wind speed. The wind vane will be used to measure the direction of the wind. Students will be able to read a thermometer and tell the temperature. I like to have different tools for the students to use and manipulate. We will be going outside and making observations of the weather.

By having these tools, my class will become mini-meteorologists.

Your donation will make science fun and engaging! My students have become science lovers, and I can't wait to see their faces when we get our materials.
