My Students

Knowledge is power, and nothing is more powerful than a child expanding and growing their minds. I have the extreme honor of teaching some of the best and brightest minds the world will ever come to know.

My students are the future in our ever-changing world.

They are future scientists, engineers, activists, and inventors. The sky is the limit when it comes to the possibilities that these great minds are learning. Since teaching these students through STEM experiences, a great deal of supplies are required in order to push them into thinking outside the realm of the normal and into the great beyond.

My Project

The classroom that I am in has no bookcases. Right now, I have my books in several locations around the room because of the lack of cases in the room. This bookcase also has a built-in seat, so students may sit while reading. Being in 1st grade, we tend to be a little tougher on furniture. This bookcase is strong and sturdy.

Inviting students to pick a book and sit on the bookcase is like inviting them on an adventure!

The bookcase will hold over 100 books and allow all of my books to be in one location.
