My Students

Being a responsible student is a major focus in my STEM class.

Our school is located in a small town, and we have a diverse group of students.

The students in my class are very creative and like to discover new things. They are hard workers and do their best to succeed. They love to read, and above all, be creative! Our school is a STEM school. Every day they come to me with new, educational, and fun ideas of what we should do during our class time.

My Project

Using plastic utensils, cups, plates, toothpicks, rubber bands, and tape in STEM class is a major staple in success. The new STEM supplies will benefit my STEM students in their every day learning by allowing them to all complete successful STEM activities. With these new STEM supplies, our students will be able to be scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. Our school day will be able to move swiftly with these needed supplies. My students need all of the basic STEM materials such as, plastic utensils, toothpicks, rubber bands, tape, Popsicle sticks, plastic cups and plates, coffee filters, cards, and pipe cleaners.
