My Students

Our class consists of a diverse group of 20 Transitional Kindergarten students including special education students who are eager to explore and have challenging opportunities to learn.

Our school has an innovated way of teaching students through music, art, technology, engineering and science which fosters students who are excited to learn and become innovative thinkers!

Students are exposed to all of these through their week at school. In my daily teaching, I also create a learning environment which enhances all of these areas.

We are creating innovative thinkers for the future!

My Project

My project will allow my students to use their creativity and work together to create problem solving projects. The materials will enhance what is taught in our classroom so they may see their thought process in action. We learn to code in our innovation time block. The Bee-Bot will give my students the hands-on experience to code and work together towards a goal. The building materials such as the Magna Tiles will give students the freedom to create and problem solve by working together. If we give children opportunities at an early age, they will gain the skills and confidence needed to be successful in our changing world. Our school's philosophy is build on the 7 Habits, which teaches children to be leaders in our society.

These materials will allow my students to use their brain power in an exciting way and see the results that can be achieved by working together.

These are future skills that are needed for them to be successful and and feel confident in our ever changing global world!
