My Students

My classroom is filled with curious and diverse young learners who love to learn! As they say, we all have something that we are dealing with. For some of my students, this may mean being food insecure, or even homeless. Other students may struggle academically or socially. However, it is important to note that despite their struggles, my students are kind and love to collaborate and problem-solve as they engage in active learning activities.

Each day with my students brings new adventures and new experiences which we explore together.

It is my goal as a teacher to further extend the love of learning to my students so they are able to not only have successful academic careers, but achieve their own personal goals and dreams.

My Project

I am a huge believer in active learning and giving students the opportunity to collaborate and problem solve as they conquer real world problems. I believe that this 3D printer will help prepare students for their technology-filled future as they experiment, design, and build their own creations using the printer.

This 3D printer will also be tremendously useful in integrating content standards from across the curriculum in a whole new way while inspiring and motivating students to learn new concepts, inquire, and be creative.

The possibilities, learning, and student engagement that this printer will bring to the classroom will be endless.

Let the 3D printing begin!
