My Students

I am a teacher with 26 years of experience. Despite my many years I am still learning new things and this year I am working on trying flexible seating. I teach at a low-income/Title I school district, and my students face several challenges both in and out of the classroom. This year we were struck by Hurricane Harvey and our school was really not damaged, but the homes of many of my students were.

Despite the hardships they have faced, they are resilient and spirited learners making their way back.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able personally to solve the many challenges they face outside of school. However, I can certainly make a powerful impact on the eight hours they spend here at school every day.

My Project

We would like a 3D printer for our grade level so that our students and teachers can make interactive and engaging tools to use in class.

There are many uses for a 3D printer and we are only limited by our imagination.

We can make manipulatives to use in class. We can make working models of what we are teaching so they can see it in front of them instead of on paper or a screen. We can even get artistic and make our own creations. It works in every subject and would be an extremely valuable asset for my team since we are willing and excited to try new things.
