My Students

I have a classroom filled with terrific students. They are smart, funny, personable, sincere, and humble. They are curious, inquisitive, and kind. I truly cannot say enough good things about them!

My students crave change; they don't want to be confined to a desk all day, listening passively.

They like to move, and they want to collaborate and create. They like to solve mysteries and figure things out. They like to listen to each other and debate their opinions. They truly love to learn!

It's easy to be a passive learner, even today, but my students want to be active. They like teachers who try new things and are willing to "think outside the box."

My Project

We will use the Breakout EDU boxes to learn and collaborate in an engaging, hands-on way! It's so fun to follow clues and try to solve problems together! Everyone loves a mystery!

For many teens, reading is often unrewarding; however, escape boxes will provide an immediate extrinsic reward for students' hard work!

Many are reluctant learners who will value the opportunity to do some things differently! School often looks the same for them: Every day requires them to sit and perform. I want them to know that they can be themselves and have some fun! We will work together to learn and grow. Let's escape the dull conventions of the typical classroom!
