My Students

I work for a wonderful school in Kokomo. We are a low-income, high needs school with students who deserve the best education possible! The community of teachers is great and the principal is wonderful.

My students will show up their first day nervous and excited just like me!

I look forward to being a positive role model for them and making my classroom a safe and loving place. I appreciate your help in fulfilling the needs of my treasured scholars!

My Project

My students LOVE building with their hands. It gets exhausting doing paper/pencil and computer work all day, and the kids would love to start their days out building.

STEM bins will be a great, hands-on way for students to start their day!

They will be able to walk in, choose what they would like to build with, and work with their peers. This will help allow them time to get out any negative emotions from home and work on collaborating with their classmates.

This will also help with life skills and working together as a team. These STEM bins will be a great asset to my classroom.
