My Students

A typical day in my Media Center is an amazing day filled with student-led discussions and hands-on learning of students ranging from prekindergarten through fifth grade. Students work together and explore the wonders of technology, math, reading, science, social studies, and writing through reading.

The students that come to the Media Center are energetic and eager to learn!

There is a range of educational levels that visit me daily, from children with special needs to gifted learners. They also come from a variety of diverse backgrounds. One of the most wonderful things they have in common is that they want to LEARN!

My Project

Having a Cricut Explore Air 2 would provide endless, creative, possibilities for students. The Cricut Explore Air 2 can cut many different types of media including vinyl and card stock to bring their imaginations to life! Students would have opportunities to use to the Cricut Explore Air 2 to aid in multimedia presentations, science fair projects, and STEAM activities. If you can imagine it, you can create it! The possibilities are endless!

Cricut's slogan is "make something amazing" and that's exactly what I want students and teachers to have the ability to do!

A Cricut Explore Air 2 would also provide teachers with tools to make their classrooms visually stimulating, help with organization and aid in making educational games. It would give teachers an opportunity to spend less time prepping and more time teaching students in a hands-on way.
