My Students

"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishment toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." - Andrew Carnegie

This quote has inspired me as an educator.

I work with an amazing group of children who are eager to learn. I enjoy seeing the excitement in their eyes when we get ready to complete a science lab. My students come from diverse backgrounds which make them unique. Many of my students come from low-income families; however, they are the best kids on the planet.

My Project

Pursuing an occupation in STEM or becoming engaged with STEM at a young age, will open countless doors for a lifetime. As an educator, I feel it is my responsibility to provide my students with the every possible exciting opportunity to learn about the field. I am requesting a kit that will allow me to bring engaging STEM activities and real-world activities. The Dino kits will allow my students to play the role of paleontologist. Students will be excavating the bones of a dinosaur that roamed the earth millions of years ago with this. Then put the pieces together and make a stunning skeleton.

This will give them the opportunity to strengthen their critical-thinking and creative problem-solving skills and reflect on their entry’s performance and what they could do to improve it.

I hope to make sure my students work together and my role is a facilitator of knowledge.
