My Students

Every morning, my culturally diverse class of students come into their classroom with both a positive growth mindset and a drive to push themselves to be the best they can be, regardless of the curriculum being taught. By the end of this school year, I embrace the hope and vision that all of my students will be more informed in all areas of the 1st-grade curriculum and utilize that knowledge in their future academic endeavors.

My goal is to facilitate students in developing the skills necessary to be critical thinkers and successful problem-solvers, in all areas of the curriculum.

My students demonstrate a passion for learning new things and enjoy hands-on engagement with fun, interactive, new materials within the classroom that are well organized and applicable to the content being taught.

Our school has a very diverse population of students who demonstrate a positive attitude about learning each and every day. This positive attitude is made possible by creating a safe and organized environment for every child and providing them with the resources to explore, problem-solve, and apply the knowledge they have acquired throughout the year.

My Project

Engagement is the key to get students actively learning. With the Osmo and Shifu interactive capabilities, students will be bringing learning to life. In addition, all games provided with the Osmo are leveled from beginner to expert. Students will be creating designs, problem-solving, and using critical thinking skills, all while increasing their vocabulary with the language arts component. In addition, students will also be learning all about other cultures. They will be exposed to other country's food, traditions, and so much more.

The items requested for this project will be utilized in a small group setting to enable students to work independently and interactively, making learning so much more purposeful and engaging.
