Teach For America corps member Nakai Corral (Baltimore `16) teaches a group of motivated, excited, and curious biology students at Forest Park Senior High School in Baltimore, Maryland. They’re so enthusiastic about learning that they’re begging their teacher non-stop for frogs to dissect.
Mr. Corral, of course, wants to give his students the opportunity to become real scientists and biologists and provide them with a 21st-century classroom experience. And in order to do so he needs 30 frogs and 10 dissecting kits to aid his students’ understanding of anatomy and physiology. His school, however, lacks the budget to provide these critical learning tools. As a result, Mr. Corral has turned to DonorsChoose.org to raise funds to purchase the frogs and dissecting kits, as well as flip charts to help map out the human body.
“I’m excited about the opportunity that running a dissection lab will have for my students,” he says. “Because of the interest that students have shown in medical subjects and getting their hands dirty, I know that this will be an awesome opportunity that will get them talking about all things biology!”
Please consider supporting Mr. Corral’s project today—and thank you, as always, for supporting teachers and the kids they serve.
