My Students

My second graders are a fabulous bunch of kiddos. They come ready to learn each and every day. They are energetic, creative, and so much fun to teach.

Our school was established five years ago.

My students come from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds, as well as, different ethnic backgrounds.

They are one big, happy family excited to learn, evolve into lifelong learners, and to be the best that they can be. They are hard workers who enjoy creative, hands-on learning and truly are the “doers” of this generation.

My Project

STEM is a great way for students to engage in various, academic learning. The idea of building lifelong learners is very important to the next generation. This generation is a group of kids that want to be the "doers" of the world--to explore and create new ways of making and new ways of thinking; to think outside the box and create the unimaginable. This generation sees no limits.

These STEM centers will be hands-on learning where students can think, create, test, and re-create their unimaginable--where they can feel the freedom to make mistakes and learn from them; where they can test and re-test until they make what their minds set out to make.

The use of these STEM centers will provide a day full of various activities centered around STEM, not only during science, but for Morning Tubs, Math, and Fidget Fridays.
