My Students

As an educator, I love nothing more than seeing my students' smiling faces each morning ready to take on the new adventure that awaits for them that day. I currently have the honor of teaching twenty of the most amazing second graders!

In my classroom, I encourage my students to have a growth mindset.

They are constantly learning new, challenging skills and concepts each day with an "I can" attitude.

I could not be more proud of my crew of determined, hardworking, caring children that inspire me each day. Through DonorsChoose.org, I hope to provide them with any additional resources they might need to be their most successful.

My Project

The first week of school is always an exciting time. My students and I spent a lot of time getting to know each other. Each day during that first week of school, I gave my students daily STEM challenges. There were several proud teacher moments that occurred while they worked together to solve their challenge.

Those challenges allowed me to see firsthand how much my students loved STEM activities.

I knew then that I needed to acquire even more STEM activities to keep that love alive. Not only will these kits keep my students focused and engaged, they will also help with communication and leadership skills. Through this project, I hope to build our STEM bins with items such as magnets and Botley robots so that my students have more options to challenge themselves each day.
