My Students

My students are from a low income, rural community and I want to bring engaging, hands-on learning exploration to the classroom. They come to school with many challenges, but they are enthusiastic, fun-loving learners ready to participate and engage. Students can be creative, inventive, and imaginative with coding.

I want to incorporate hands-on learning activities so students can incorporate computer science standards while they design and create as they implement STEM in the classroom.

My students thrive off discovery and inquiry. Our class is filled with many different personalities who are excited to learn. Each and every day we focus on reflection and improving ourselves as learners.

My Project

Our district is starting an Advanced Learning Program for our students and we need supplies! I want to bring engaging, hands-on learning exploration to the classroom. Alternative seating offer more structure and stability while allowing students to get their wiggles out! Alternative is an awesome seating option for the classroom. My students are from a low income, rural community. They come to school with many challenges but they are enthusiastic, fun-loving learners. They love to explore new concepts and ideas.

I want to bring engagement to the classroom by allowing students to get their wiggles out and learn new subject matter.

Needing to move will no longer be an issue for any student and they will be able to concentrate better.
