My Students

My 3rd grade classroom at our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) magnet school is full of curious students from diverse backgrounds who are all passionate about learning through hands-on experience. When these eager learners walk in the classroom every morning their eyes light up when we review the day and they hear the words STEAM time!

Our project-based learning environment fosters the natural curiosity of these creative 8 and 9 year old scholars.

Our school features an Innovation Lab where students can take what they are learning in the classroom about the world around them and design solutions to real-world problems. In addition, students participate in weekly dedicated STEAM time. They work in collaboration groups to explore STEAM related curriculum. Their excitement for learning is contagious. We are developing critical thinkers who will be life-long learners and the problem-solvers of tomorrow.

My Project

We are educating students for jobs that don't yet exist. This is especially true in the fields of STEM, digital technology and robotics. Students need hands-on learning experiences in the classroom that integrate math, science, and technology together. Innovation and inquiry are natural abilities for 3rd grade students at our STEAM magnet school. We are looking to take coding skills beyond those available through apps. The goal is to have students coding weekly in a variety of different avenues. It is vital for students to learn to collaborate, to work together, and share ideas. Having hands-on coding kits accessible in the classroom for group learning will only make for stronger connections among students and deeper understanding of coding.
