My Students

My 8th graders, located in suburban Minnesota, are comprised of a beautiful blend of diverse backgrounds, abilities, and cultures. My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions!

They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects which allows them to showcase their creativity and individuality.

I want my students to make mistakes boldly, to push through the fear of failure, so that they can learn and grow from each trial.I am looking to incorporate more project and technology based learning.

The more hand-on activities students perform, the more engaged they become in their own learning. I want my students to increase their responsibility for their own learning.

My Project

With the Cricut Maker, I want my students to incorporate art and technology into STEAM and project based learning. This would be an innovative way to incorporate technology that would allow students to have finished products, of their own design that they can take home, wear, or gift. It would allows them to use their voice and choice to create something tangible and highly visual.

Being able to cut through a variety of materials, my students could create a variety of visual representations of important science topics and raise awareness for issues such as global warming, climate change, ocean acidification, etc.

These topics already covered in class could come to life and allow students to deeper their learning. By providing them opportunities to express their creativity and individuality will increase the value they see in what they learn. this will encourage them to be proud of their work and thus facilitate a desire for a lifetime of learning
