My Students

My scholars are unique individuals on their journey to college. They have a zest for learning and always try their best. They come to school each and every day ready to learn and engage in real-world connections. They understand the importance of lifelong learning and self-accountability. This year, we are welcoming inclusion scholars with special needs into our general education classrooms.

These wonderful children are on a path to excellence and nothing can stop them!

I am so happy to be able to watch them grow and learn. They will all benefit from using these materials and I know it will make learning fun and engaging.

My Project

What makes a bridge sturdy and strong? How do vehicles move and carry things? These building centers help students make real-world connections and reinforce 21st-century skills. These engaging hands-on kits, help reinforce the engineering design process while fostering a lot of science and STEAM.

These materials will help scholars learn the engineering design process as they collaborate, build, and create!

Using these hands-on manipulatives will foster a love for learning as students will explore many STEAM concepts. They will work in groups to complete each building task as we focus on areas of force, motion, energy, measurement, and much more!
