Please help 100 second graders see butterflies at the Pacific Science Center!
If you use the promo code ROADMAP your money will be doubled!

My Project:
We would love to take our 100 students to the Pacific Science Center to see the tropical butterfly house. Toward the end of the year, we will be studying butterflies in the classroom. Adventuring with our students in the exhibit would be a wonderful culminating activity to our science unit. It would provide a glimpse into a part of the world very unlike Seattle and Burien -- a warm, sunny place where colorful butterflies are active 365 days a year.

Upon sharing the possibility of this field trip with my students, they were overjoyed. I asked them how it would change their lives for the better. Zainab said,"Seeing the butterflies would help me learn more about their disguises and how they use camouflage." Samatar said, "The Science Center would help me understand the life cycle better." Jose said it best with, "It'd be fun! I'd get to be curious and ask questions about science." Please help foster that curiosity within our students

Thank you so much for your support!

I'm trying to do several things. First I'd like to replace our old broken desks with tables that provide space for student collaboration. Next my scoerce class needs a demonstration table. Finally, I'm looking for better technology in the classroom using an iPad, stylus, Apple TV and MacBook Air to create presentations and movies, and digitally correct and markup student work. Returning it to them in Google Classroom.

My story is simple: A guy from Jackson, MS who found out there is a whole world out here...

For my birthday, I decided to raise money for the Learn To Be Foundation. They provide free online tutoring for students and use volunteer tutors. In other words, it's people helping the future thinkers of tomorrow to become who they want to be. I had the idea to dedicate my birthday to charity and after seeing their commercial on Hulu and doing some research, I was convinced to support them. To date, the online campaign has raised $875. Every $25 funds 1 month of service for #LearnToBe. They are a 501.c non-profit organization with no strings attached. Check out the link below and if you choose to support, I am asking for a $25 donation. I appreciate any person who takes the time to read these words.
