My Students

Students who enter my classroom are bright, young individuals who come from a variety of backgrounds. My school has a very high percentage of students receiving free lunch. Many students in my school struggle to bring a pencil or paper to class. My school has a garden that students have the chance to work in.

I believe every student can be successful.

In my classroom; students are taught to work hard every day no matter what they are facing in life. I believe that every student is able to overcome and triumph. Many of my students rise to my expectations through their behavior and classwork.

My Project

This project includes three 3D pen sets for students to use in the classroom. With these 3D pens, students would be able to create 3D items of what we are learning about in class. This would relate to our science standards and our technology standards.

Science and technology go hand in hand in today's always changing world.

My students need to have the chance to create and plan projects with the 3D pens. The 3D pens would help to bridge the gap between technology and my students. The students would then have the chance to create a display with the vinyl requested for their 3D items. This would really bring my STEAM unit to life throughout the entire year!
