My Students

My students are amazing and eager to learn new things! Our classroom is filled with a variety of learners, each with unique needs. I strive to actively engage all students and to make their learning experience fun. I love working with my students and being able to watch them grow and learn all year long.

I work hard to create a positive and supportive classroom environment that allows for all students to learn and grow.

We have a supportive team spirit in our classroom and we enjoy coming together to encourage and root each other on.

My Project

I want to offer my students hands on choices when they have completed work. STEM activities will allow all students to further develop their creative and critical thinking skills as they work on activities. Items like puzzles, magnetic building blocks, and a place to store them for easy access will be a great addition for all learners in our classroom.

These products will challenge students to enhance necessary problem-solving skills, by applying creative solutions using engaging and non-consumable items.

The addition of STEM activities into our daily routine will provide students more independence and offer a variety of learning options for all.
