My Students

I am starting a journey at a new school this school year, after being home with my own children for the last 2 years. I am so excited and passionate about being back in the classroom!

My students are so excited about learning, taking everything in like little sponges.

That’s why I adore first grade! My main goal this first grade school year is to instill and preserve a love for learning in my students! I want them to light up when they read, be excited to write, and realize how much fun math can be!

My students attend a high poverty school. Some of my students may not have the resources at home that they need to be successful at school. It is my job to make up for that and even out their playing field at school. Thank-you so much for your support!

My Project

My class is full of little scientists and engineers. They love science and math which has made emmerging STEM and the engineering and design process into my curriculum so easy.

Anatomy, science, engineering, and math are most fun when they are hands-on.

Merge cubes will bring these things to life for my students. Imagine having a 3D image of the sun that you can manipulate, dig into, and observe from all angles. Imagine being able to explore the human body with a touch of your fingertips. This is just some of the opportunities that my students will have with your donation.
