Creating STEM-Gineers!

My Students

My students are hard working and ready to learn. They are full of energy and a blast to teach. They are constantly learning new information, growing as individuals, and teaching me life-lessons in the process. I learn just as much from their energetic spirit and desire to learn as they learn from me. They work hard on their academics, but also dedicate time to learning how to be good classroom citizens and kind to one another. We are a community of love & learning.

My Project

These STEM materials will be used daily in my classroom to develop critical thinking skills. My students will use all of the STEM materials such as magnetic tiles, building blocks, Qubits and many others. They can work with one another or on their own to solve the challenges. The STEM challenges are of varying levels, to allow for success for all and extended thinking.

Using a variety of hands-on STEM materials meets every child's needs and gets them to think and learn while having fun in the process.

Through exploration, my students will discover they have the skills and knowledge to succeed at challenging tasks. Learning should be engaging, fun, and challenging to help kids reach their highest potential.
