My fifth graders are kind, hilarious, incredible people, with a hunger for knowledge. These students come from near and far, and in 4 short years, have taught me more than I could have imagined!
I begin each day with a hug, handshake, or high-five from around 40 ten-year-olds.
My class is multicultural and extremely diverse. We speak 4 languages total, and have family from all over the world! These students come in with stories, questions, and experiences that have given me the gift of laughter, taught me empathy, and sharpened my wit. I am as enriched by them as they will ever be by my teaching.
My name is Werren, and I am a student in Mrs. Linton's class. I have a great idea for our classroom! We are studying science and math topics, and are getting ready for STEM week. That stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. We want a 3D printer to help us really understand and use what we're learning in math and science. Students will be highly engaged and motivated by the materials provided by the 3D printer. The machine is easy to use and maintain. It's the turnkey to STEM for us kids. Developing projects with the materials provided by a 3D printer makes it so easy for an educator to learn how to use this technology.
It would transform our 2D education into 3D!
Mrs. Linton would have just as much fun teaching as we will have creating. The 3D printer would be useful to our classroom because we have a lack of access to STEM materials needed for these high-tech lessons. Our school is a Title I school, so it does not provide us with these materials. We are smart kids and have a lot of fun learning!
