My Students

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group of 5th and 6th graders, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

My students have not been exposed to many of the technological advances available today. A 3D printer and filament will require them to explore their skills in art, design, computers, programming, and more. I hope to spark some curiosity, creativity, and awesomeness with this printer.

There is something about watching something you created come to life right before your very eyes.

Turning their ideas into concrete items proves that things you imagine really are possible.

My students need to see that it is possible to reach their dreams as long as you put in the work that is required to get there. We will take the time to create various projects and items then be able to print them and actually put them to use right away. They will be able to experience that sense of pride you get from creating something while strengthening various skills in math, English, science, design, and other areas during this process.
