My Students

I teach a room filled with bright and inquisitive students at a Title I school in northwest Georgia. My students love hands-on challenges and opportunities to work together.

The best days in my classroom are when students get to collaborate to tackle a STEM challenge.

I am amazed by their ability to persevere on a project and to encourage their peers to strive to new heights. This is going to be an exciting year in second grade! I can't wait to see what my students will accomplish next!

My Project

I often challenge my students and need non-consumable materials for the students to use for lessons.

My students will use these items regularly to build models, test hypotheses, design creative solutions, and collaborate to solve problems.

These materials will enhance lessons and provide students the opportunity to explore college and career options while solving real-world problems. The materials will also be used for STEM projects, creativity models, classroom enrichment time, and free-building opportunities. Today's children spend so much time on technology devices; these materials will give them more opportunities to unplug and engage in creative tasks while working with others.
