My Students

My students are curious and unique little humans from all over the world! At our school, students represent over 30 different countries!

No matter what language or ability students have, play brings them together!

My students love their time to build, create, and share with one another!

I love seeing their brains learning and thinking when building with one other. Hearing “let’s try this!” makes my heart happy! The excitement and glow of their faces when they achieve their building goal is priceless!

My Project

At our school we work to SEE, INSPIRE, and EMPOWER the lifelong learner and leader in everyone! These blocks will allow my students to work together to practice their social and leadership skills! Students will have the opportunity to learn trial and error, leading others, listening to others, and synergy to create something amazing with the help of each other!

These blocks will fulfill our goal of STEM learning in the classroom.

Lessons will include working together to engineer towers, bridges, and more! Students will learn trial and error, cooperation, listening skills, and leadership skills. Synergy is students working together to build and create something more amazing than they could have done on their own!
