My Students

Being a kid can be hard, but when you do not have the emotional understanding to express your feelings, it can cause behavioral problems. My classroom is a safe space for students to learn how to deal with their emotions, trauma, and social skills.

My class is made up of students from various grade levels and ability levels.

We work hard to fill in learning gaps and have students reach grade level. My students are dealing with emotional issues that make it hard for them to handle frustration with tasks and need a lot of individual attention.

By learning to work independently and with purpose, my students will have the chance to mainstream into other classrooms with their peer groups. Our biggest goal with my students is for them to learn not only to control their emotions but to learn how to be students. Modeling good classroom routines and tasks is important for them to master and move back into general education classrooms.

My Project

Imagine if you were able to expand your science understanding in elementary school with hands-on learning! With this project, I hope to expose my students to the Engineering Design Process by showing them the steps they need to become a materials engineer.

Materials engineers use their knowledge of different materials (such as metals, plastics or wood) to create items that solve everyday problems.

With this kit, students will experiment with various materials that can be used to make bubble wands, deciding the best materials for making different types of bubbles, and experimenting with which combination of materials they will use to create their own unique bubble wands.

My hope is to show my students the world applications of the learning standards we are required to teach and how it all can be applied to their daily lives. Applying what you learn in the classroom and being able to see it all work will be something my students will never forget.
