My Students

I teach in a school where the student population is linguistically and culturally diverse, and which services a community with families from all over the world. I am always looking for highly engaging, creative ways to tap into my students' hunger for knowledge and their curiosity about the world, whether it is through art, music, dance, or literature.

I see the exciting possibilities that I can make available to my students who need opportunities to explore creative and critical thinking through different learning modalities.

And I am often touched by the level of care and kindness with which all my students help each other in our quest to learn. Now, even in my eighteenth year as an educator, my students never cease to amaze me with their persistence and grit in learning new content, as well as their inquisitiveness, creativity, and eagerness to learn new things.

My Project

With 3Doodler pens, the potential for inspiring my young learners and for making connections with other content areas is tremendous. Since we would all be getting our feet wet for the first time with these tools, I'd like to start our class with exploring concepts of geometry. We will be using the pens to create two-dimensional shapes, then using those shapes to build three-dimensional figures (squares can be assembled to make cubes, etc.). To take this a step further, we'd also be using the geometric figures we create to enhance the Design-Based Learning (a form of project-based learning) methodology that I apply in my classroom for many of the lessons I teach - to create wonderful never-before-seen creatures and an entire city in which they can "live."

The 3Doodler pens would be such an amazing way to channel children's imagination and creativity in anything we are learning.

My students will not only have more opportunities in visual art, but they will be able to use whatever work they create to enhance their writing projects, practice reading comprehension and critical thinking (hey, let's read a page out of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and create a 3Doodler model of one of the characters!), and challenge themselves by creating and inventing new things to solve problems. I can hardly wait for us to start exploring with these marvelous pens.
