My Students

My Students

In our classroom, we try to be as hands-on and innovative as possible.

We want to explore and create possibilities. Our biggest challenge is getting the materials we need to provide the ultimate learning experience. Our school is located in a low-income area.

Many of our students live below the poverty line.

They work well as teams and are more like a family than many of them have at home. It is amazing what these students are doing at this school, and we would like to continue and go even further with this tradition.

My Project

We enjoy using technology in our classroom. We are a one to one school and are always looking for ways to enhance our technical learning environment. We feel that a 3D printer would be a great way to do this.

Hands on learning is the most effective way to engage the students in my classroom.

By being able to get in there and make something, the students are able to learn, and more importantly, retain what they are learning. This donation will make it possible to help my students reach their maximum potential for learning. Thanks in advance for your generosity.
