My Students

My students love to learn and be challenged in any way. They are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. The way they encourage each other and work collaboratively in any environment is the perfect foundation to learning.

My Project

This project allows my students to delve into the ancient world of healthy practices that are still being used today. My students will have the chance for a hands on learning into these practices. Understanding and even knowing how to use these, will open their eyes to a "BETTER ME." Researching and learning about these practices that were used to live a better life. This project gives me the opportunity to teach my students how to deal with real life stresses and problems using natural resources. Taking my students on this journey to becoming “A Better Me” using various resources will be enlightening for all of us.
