My Students

My students come from all around a bustling city with a lot diversity and many different cultures. My students 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. Truly, they are my inspiration!

My students are eager to learn and are ready to do so everyday.

They love sharing new ideas, creating, and learning through projects and play.

My Project

My students are very creative and thrive with a manipulative rich STEM environment. Legos and molding sand allow them to explore their creative side and play and learn together.

My students will use these hands-on materials for active learning through play.

I want to be able to provide my students with interactive learning opportunities to promote fun, hands-on learning. Also, with these materials students will be able to play, learn, and work together. It is a great opportunity to practice social emotional skills and develop good interaction practices. My students really enjoy STEM and are so excited for new materials!
