My Students

I teach in a public charter school in Surprise, Arizona. I have a classroom with 25 inquisitive students! These students love to take a break from our workbooks and worksheets to do some hands on learning! They are so creative and have so many questions about how things work!

I want to challenge them to think outside the box when they come to school!

I want to provide them with some amazing hands on resources to deepen their knowledge on the topics we learn about!

My Project

All students want to learn and play with their hands! Its what draws them into the learning environment without them realizing they are having fun while learning the topic! Students want to be engaged in the class with some fun outside the box learning and I want to do just that for my students!

My students are inquisitive and want to learn with their hands while pushing the textbook and worksheets aside!

All the products that I have listed will help my students deepen their problem solving skills. I want to give them the materials and act more like an educational guide in the class and let their imagination run wild and free!
