My Students

This year I have the amazing opportunity to teach STEM to all the kindergarten through fifth grade students, about four hundred and twenty-five of them! We meet once per week to work on STEM projects that address their grade level standards and try to solve real world problems. My classes have a wide range of student abilities which include gifted, ESOL, autistic, special needs and general education students. These students have grown up together and have developed a great sense compassion towards one another.

We are part of a diverse community that takes pride in their school and provides support to their students and teachers.

Our small neighborhood school is composed of a mix of apartments, condominiums, older homes and new housing. One of our strongest assets is our extensive STEM Program.

Thirty percent of our students are on free or reduced price lunch. Our population is made up approximately forty-five percent white, thirty-one percent Hispanic and fourteen percent African American.

My Project

As the STEM teacher at our school I see about 450 students each week. We spend a lot of time in our STEM garden observing, planting, monitoring plant growth and insect poulations, harvesting, and preparing the food we grow.

iPads would make it easy for students from kindergarten through fifth grade to document the growth of their plants and the insects they observe using photos.

They will use the iPads to research their discoveries in the garden, document growth, post photos, create slide shows, Powerpoints and create data charts.

The iPads would also be used daily for most STEM projects throughout year.
