My Students

Our classroom is located in the middle of Denver, Colorado and is at the focuses on redefining how technology is used during instruction. My students are creative, thoughtful and ready to engage in topics that will help them shape and advocate for their future.

Given the variety of rich languages being spoken and cultures represented, it is our classroom's goal to retain and enhance all native and academic language being spoken at school.

It is our school's goal to appreciate and foster all language to support increased assessment proficiency in math and literacy

My Project

Breakout EDU is a physical game kit and platform where students work together to solve various puzzles to open a locked box, similar to an escape room. Implementing these games in the classroom will help students develop soft skills that will help them in future career pursuits.

Breakout opportunities foster students engagement and focus on building the critical-thinking and social and emotional skills necessary to solve these complex problems.

Students will think they are getting a "break" from their normal classwork without realizing they are engaging in more rigorous cognitive work. Collaboration, communication, and considering differing perspectives will help encourage well-rounded students.
