John Locke the famous enlightenment philosopher speaks of humans as a tabula rasa or a blank slate in which our experiences sculpt who we are as individuals. This theory brings new important meaning to the role of a teacher. I hope to leave a mark on not just a few but EVERY one of my students this year. They deserve the very same resources, experiences, and opportunities that students of wealthier communities receive on a daily basis. It is my goal that through engaging scientific labs, eye opening field trips, and rigorous lesson plans I can provide our students with the education that they need and deserve. Please help support my classroom by donating. Anything that you donate will be put to great use. I look forward to a great year with my students!
