My Students

Our students at SMMS come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 60% of our students receiving free lunch. My students walk into class every day ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

My students will have the opportunity to get more hands-on work with our STEM resources. I believe most students learn best with a hands-on approach. We will use Chromebooks to research the information necessary for our curriculum. They can use the 3D pen to model various aspects of the curriculum, especially when they are required to "make models". I cannot think of a better way to build a 3D model! A lot of my students enjoy drawing, so seeing their drawings come to life in 3D will be EYE OPENING for them. I am really excited to give my students this opportunity for success.
