My Students

The school I teach in is made up of a diverse group of students. Sixty-eight percent of those students come from a socioeconomic disadvantage. As children who come from low-income homes, my students deserve the same opportunities that other schools are given. Each day, my students walk into the classroom excited to learn, sing songs, and challenge themselves to solve problems and try new things.

They love to dance, paint, imagine, and play.

I want their first experience of school to be awe-inspiring. Although there are daily challenges at home and with academics, my students continue to work hard and be successful.

My Project

As my kindergarten students continue to grow throughout the year, their fine motor, critical thinking, and communication skills grow with them. By giving my students these wonderful science resources, they will have the opportunity to learn through hands-on experiences. These resources will not only encourage the students learning, but they will also deepen their level of understanding.

The goal is to make science an exciting and engaging experience for each student, no matter what level of experience or exposure.

During lessons throughout the year, the Science Tools Supply will be used to examine and analyze magnetic pull, animals, and plants. The Science Instant Learning Centers will be used for students to explore with. And, the Plants and Flowers Pocket Chart Kit will bring plant growth to life. I cannot wait to expose these kinders to tools that will encourage them to become lifelong learners and young scientists.
