My Students

I am proud to serve teachers and students in a rural school district. I am the instructional coach for grades 6-8. The students in this school really enjoy student-centered and project based learning. The students are brilliant and motivated. However, there are key resources that our classroom teachers need in order to make learning fun and relevant. This project will help give middle school students the experience that they deserve and that allow them to explore the joys of learning.

My Project

Today's students live in a society where there are several factors that can be a distraction while learning. However, if students have classroom activities that capture their interest, they are more likely to be engaged in active learning. Breakout EDU is an excellent resource that allow teachers to create a student-centered classroom environment. Students also have to use several 21st century skills such as collaboration, listening, critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity. The kits are also cost efficient because they can be used in multiple classrooms. By donating to our project, you will not only help students become active learners in the classroom, but also equip them with world-class skills.
