My Students

Many of my students are highly motivated and ready to learn. They are like sponges, ready for knowledge about the scientific world in which we live. Other students need an intriguing educational experience in order to accomplish their potential.

My students are young scientists who measure, weigh, hypothesize, theorize and will make the great future scientific, medical and technological discoveries of the world!

They need the most current technology, curriculum, and a safe place to thrive in today's world.

I am committed to providing my students, parents, and patrons courteous and professional services to allow for the success of each and every student. I will provide the most outstanding educational experiences available including hands-on learning through the use of STEM supplies.

My Project

Groups will be assigned to a catapult set to discuss and analyze the best way to configure the catapult to complete an obstacle course the fastest with the best accuracy. Catapults will be used as a STEM challenge for students in collaborate and form ideas about Newton's Laws of Motion. Another STEM challenge will be to figure out the best way to use the ramps and cars to get the heaviest and lightest car down the ramp the fastest and slowest.

STEM challenges allow my students to use critical thinking skills paired with collaboration skills.

Students will work together towards a common goal through team work!
