My Students

My Gifted and Talented students want to be challenged continuously. They are excited about opportunities to explore their own interests.

The students want to be able to work on projects that they can apply to their real life and they love to be involved in things that make them feel grown up.

They want to learn and become productive members of their communities.

I am excited to be a part of their learning experience and so thankful that you want to be as well.

My Project

The students will name their business and create a logo for it, make business cards, advertisements, packaging and also create their actual products.

The students will use these books to learn the details involved in setting up a business and will use the notebooks, pencils, erasers and balloons to help set up an Office Supply store.

They will choose a business partner to work with in the creation of their business.

They will consider their market and set reasonable prices for their items. They will determine their inventory and supply needs and determine their out-of-pocket expenses. They will then set up their companies and sell to their classmates.
