My Students

My students ask many questions that direct their learning. They thrive on doing activities that foster creativity, problem-solving skills, and imagination.

I also consider my class a junior United Nations.

We're a mix of race and nationalities and with this, comes a range of experiences and points of views. We embrace this uniqueness and integrate it into our daily lives within and outside the classroom walls.

We're a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) certified school that integrates all curricular areas through inquiry learning. Teaching and learning are made exciting through solving real-world problems. My students work hands-on to learn both academic and life lessons.

My Project

There was a time when your only option to create something was to use common materials such as paper, plastic, cardboard, wood, metal, etc. with hand or power tools. Technology has grown exponentially, allowing almost anyone with a design and a computer to create amazing things.

The Glowforge Plus 3D laser printer will allow my students to create a myriad of objects from their own designs.

It is the latest in 3D laser printing, far surpassing Cricut or Silhouette machines. It can cut or engrave paper, plywood, acrylic, leather, metal, glass, and even seaweed! The Glowforge Pro will meld perfectly with my weekly Genius Hour where students come up with ideas and bring them to life. We will also use it during several of our STEM units, such as creating a super bird beak.
