I aim for each student to be the best that they can be through learning, determination, hard work, compassion, kindness, guidance, prayer, and respect for all. My students become my children and the class becomes a family of God! I will concentrate on creating a positive atmosphere and provide encouragement and support to all. I look forward to creating a productive school year. It will be filled with many diverse learning experiences and endless opportunities for personal, academic, and spiritual growth.  Together and with God’s blessings, we will get through any adversity.

What kinds of organisms live there? What is the weather like? Where can this habitat be found on earth? What special adaptations must an organism have to survive in this habitat? Report must have a colorful cover on construction paper with title of  title of habitat, students name and class, and a creative cover. The students will be receiving 2 assessment grades for this project. One will be an ELA grade and the other a Science grade.

Please use a covered shoe box, construction paper, animal figurines,clay,play-dough,aluminum foil, cotton balls,cardboard, paint, markers, crayons, different household items to create a 3 dimension habitat scene. Please be creative and neat.   On top of shoe box diorama please attach an index card with tile, brief description of habitat, name, and grade.
