My Students

My school is a neighborhood charter school. We serve three hundred thirty students in Pre-K through 5th grade. 90% of our students are below the poverty line and receive free and reduced lunches. Our zip code ranks highest in our state of incarcerated parents, child abuse and single parent families. Though these stats are staggering, our kids are resilient, determined and one success story after another.

Each year, I am motivated by the wonder and amazement I see take place within my kids.

They are future business leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, athletes, singers, dancers, comedians, and teachers. They possess a grit and determination that is unseen in many adults, and they know that lessons learned from failing are more valuable than money.

We are led by a principal and a team of teachers who are visible, engaged, and invested in every aspect of success for my kids. This team fosters the idea that no matter what your background, you have a chance to make it better through education. We believe that empowering our students with experiences will make them the problem solvers of tomorrow.

My Project

One of the biggest challenges in the classroom is making every moment meaningful and educational. There are always students who finish earlier than others, and you need to make sure you have something engaging and purposeful for them to do when they are done so you can continue helping the students that need a little extra time. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) bins are the perfect activity for early finishers! Lakeshore Learning has a huge variety of ready-to -go centers that are the perfect early finisher activity. Students will be able to use the supplies included in Lakeshore's activity packs, along with the task cards to complete engineering tasks that will be both fun and educational. These STEAM based center packs that I will receive from Lakeshore Learning, if this grant is funded, will help me create ready-to-go STEAM bins for my students to grab and create! This will help expand their minds to science, technology, engineering, art, and math.
