My Students

Our Elementary School is located in a small rural county outside of Richmond. Students at our Elementary School are well rounded, caring individuals that crave hands on experiences. They come from a dynamic mix of backgrounds ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. These students thrive on taking ownership of their learning.

I believe in developing well rounded individuals who are challenged to work hard and learn through play.

Students remember the experiences they have. I want our students to feel comfortable enough in all the spaces of our school. Our Elementary School has been open since 1957 and has been well loved! All the teachers at our school work hard to make the school feel like home. I want to utilize every nook and cranny of our school to maximize students' experiences everyday!

My Project

My goal is to create a positive and welcoming space for students to use in order to collaborate on projects, work with a partner, and think creatively. Having a new table with flexible seating will allow students to utilize a small space in many different ways.

Education should mimic the economy of today and tomorrow.

In order to better prepare students for a collaborative workforce, I want to encourage teamwork, communication, and problem solving. Various seating options and an additional table will allow students the ability to use an old space in a new way! It will also allow various teachers the opportunity to work with small groups of students in a more flexible setting.
