My Students

Please support us as we rebuild our community!

We are a small community that has recently been devastated by the Camp Fire in Northern California.

My 1st grade class is full of hope, and we are so thankful to be back together! It has been quite a journey, but we are looking towards the future and making the best of each day! I am so blessed to be back with these amazing and resilient students and families!

Thank you for your support.

My Project

LEGO sets provide the engaging, hands-on experiences students need to explore core STEAM concepts and link them to the world. Students work together to find solutions as they problem-solve and discover how science, technology, engineering, and math affect their everyday life. All students of any age enjoy playing and creating with LEGO!

Help students develop 21st century skills and become lifelong learners.

My students are so passionate about building right now and these sets would enhance the legos we already have. They will be able to create wheeled vehicles along with other simple machines.

Thank you again for supporting us!
