My Students

Our school is sixty percent free or reduced-price lunch and filled with beautiful diversity. We have representatives from thirty-three different countries across the world.

We are a Title I school and we have close to five hundred students ranging from pre-k through fifth grade, all coming from mixed backgrounds.

As a school, we encourage Project Based Learning and maker-space activities for students to have unique learning experiences.

I teach a multi-age classroom that includes students in third, fourth, and fifth grade. Everyday the three grade levels work together to collaborate and learn from each other.

My Project

It is a goal of mine this year to be able to provide my multi-age classroom multiple opportunities to shop, prepare, and cook meals for each other. This will also help promote and show students healthy cooking styles and healthy diets.

Cooking in the classroom combines so many cross-curricular learning activities that will be able to allow my students to make connections to the content and give them life-long learning experiences.

We are asking for paring knives, cutting boards, pots and pans, mixing bowls, and cooking utensils to be able to provide our students with cooking experiences in the classroom. This will also bond our classroom together, and share meals and recipes that will connect us culturally. I look forward to being able many enriching, healthy, and delicious cooking opportunities.
