My Students

I work at a middle school with many great students. However, many of them are still searching for their “place” in our school. They are desperately looking to make friends, but with today’s technology of smart phones videos, social media, and video games, it can be difficult to make real relationships with people. I have had several kids beg for a game club.

Our school is located in a suburban area with a large percentage of low-income households.

The school is becoming increasingly diverse with more EL students as well a special education. Many students that have shown interest in the club are not involved in other after school activity.

I am starting a board game club to help students meet friends in a safe environment, learn strategy and reasoning skills, and learn to win and lose with grace.

My Project

Games help kids learn important skills. My after school club serves a diverse set of kids that that aren’t involved in other activities at school. These kids come to meet friends and make connections.

Students have requested games such as Chess, Connect Four, and Uno so that they can have one on one competitions as well as tournaments.

These logic games will improve this critical thinking, logic, and strategy skills.

My game club meets after school to give kids a place to meet and interact with one another by using some classic games that they love to play. The club serves kids that aren’t involved in other extracurricular activities.
