My Students

My students are bright, caring individuals that love to learn! They make teaching fun and encourage me daily with their desire to learn, especially since they are learning to love to read independently.

My students love learning about the world and how it works, through reading about it and discovering it through hands-on projects and field trips!

We recently did a lesson making slime with jello, where they had to follow the directions and make predictions about what would happen once it was mixed together. We had a few mistakes along the way which led to great discussions about discovery and the scientific method. Seriously, these kids are so great to teach because they are so curious and willing to learn!

My Project

At the Maker Educator Collective Bootcamp, I will develop skills to incorporate making into my pedagogical toolkit and how to integrate these skills into all subjects. The sessions will provide me with skills and model lessons using hands-on engineering and design challenges, digital manufacturing, microcontrollers, and electronics and a variety of other inexpensive low- and high-tech materials and equipment. I will be engaged thinking about and exploring maker pedagogy related to assessment, connecting with content standards, designing for accessibility, documentation, and storytelling. They are going to walk me through the steps of visioning my goals for engaging students in making and we will have frank discussions around how to get my program and space up and running, including budgeting for equipment, materials, and maintenance. I will leave with enough resources and skills to be comfortable engaging my students in making when school starts!
