My Students

My students are bright, curious, and very sweet children. They have so much energy and excitement day after day, and they are like little sponges that soak up as much knowledge as they can from those around them.

Some of them come from difficult backgrounds, and yet they persevere and relentlessly push through these trials at a young age.

Their love for life and desire for learning is stronger than ever, and their kind hearts touch me deeply every day.

My Project

In a world where technology is so heavily emphasized and pushed in schools, I still want to create a space for students to participate in engaging, hands-on games that teach teamwork, logic, creativity, strategy, and patience all in one! These games that I've chosen are educational, strategic, interactive, and highly recommended. They require students to work with one another and engage in conversation instead of just sitting there and staring at a computer screen.

I would love to see my students playing with one another, learning from each other, using their critical thinking skills, and finding joy in simple board games that remind us of our childhood.

Let's bring in some more fun during the school day!
