My Students

My third-grade scholars are from around the world! Pakistan, India, Ethiopia, and Bolivia are just a few countries that are represented in the classroom in which we celebrate our diversity. These scholars have written their hopes and dreams for their future and set goals for our third-grade year that will help them reach their full potential. They are motivated and eager to learn. Some have set their career goals. A few students hope to be the first female United States President and several who want to be scientists to make the world a better place, among the many ambitions

These are 21st-century learners that are developing the collaborative skills necessary for their future career paths.

Collaboration fosters the development of new ideas and exposes students to opposing viewpoints. Through utilizing furniture that is flexible, moveable and also adapts to each student's learning style as they strive to work on inquiry and project-based learning activities in an International Baccalaureate School.

My Project

My mission as a facilitator of learning of these third-grade scholars is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Our school encourages students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Through our inquiry and project-based learning projects our lessons will be supported by a classroom space of new tables and new flexible seating that allows for collaboration between students in pairs or small groupings, your donation will make this wish a reality for our students-our future--our future leaders, poets, teachers, scientists, and more!
