My Students

I teach 4th grade at an excellent elementary school that is paving the way for a bright future for all the students we serve.

My students are some of the most amazing individuals that I have ever met.

They are intelligent, humorous, and inquisitive. I show up to work every day ready to give them 110% because that is what they deserve. I am the team lead for 4th grade working with 7 other talented teachers, so not only will this donation help my students and my future students, but it will help all 4th grade students at our beautiful campus and community.

My Project

By attaining these items, my students will get the chance to begin understanding basic properties of circuits. Students will understand what is required to complete a circuit. Students will be able to build series and parallel circuits and understand the difference between the different circuits. Students will also learn about conductors and insulators.

These donations could shape future electrical engineers.

My students deserve every opportunity to thrive and experience technology. These tools will allow students to broaden their horizons. I hope this sparks an interest that will last a lifetime. Technology leads the way to a brighter future, and I look forward to seeing what my students can accomplish.
