My Students

A typical day in my classroom is fun with lots of hands-on learning. My students are so eager to learn and love school so much. They get excited about new things and new topics we learn about.

Most of my students come from lower-income families, and 100% of my campus receive free lunch.

My students are very young and love helping me out. My students typically can come from all sorts of backgrounds, things normal people may not be experiencing at their homes. A lot of the times, my students come to school hungry, sleepy, or they may not even have a bed to sleep in. School is a place where they can get their needs met both emotionally and physically. I want to ensure my students feel safe and want to come to school.

My Project

I am wanting to introduce my students to the science world through STEAM activities. With these kits, there will tons of hands-on opportunities for young learners to explore the world of science. These awesome kits come fully loaded for the students to be able to easily grab and discover and build different items.

In my classroom, we are going full STEAM ahead in learning.

STEM bins will be placed on a cart where the students can easily grab them. When students’ regular classwork is complete, they can take one STEM bin at a time, either to their seat or a more quiet carpet area so as not to distract other students who are working and get a quiet moment to engineer.
