My Students

I have six STEAM (STEM) classes a day. They are full of 6th-8th grade students that are VERY excited about hands-on learning! We are building, creating, discovering and learning new technology EVERY DAY.

My students are working hard, learning new things, and gaining self-confidence in their abilities everyday in my classroom.

My students come from many walks of life, some are from "way out in the country", some live "in town", many come from bilingual families, and most of them are recipients of free or reduced price meals. But they all have one thing in common...they love STEAM (STEM) class!

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math may not seem like most student's favorite subjects but when you put them all together and student's get to use their brain and their hands to try out building, coding, robotics, and tinkering all while learning concepts that benefit them in their other core classes, well it's a mixture they really enjoy!

My Project

My middle school students do not have a separate art class. My STEM, now STEAM, class is the only time they get to explore with art materials.

This project will let them practice the engineering design process while creating sculptures of animals with wire, plaster gauze and paint.

First, students will choose an animal (real or imagined) and create a skeletal base for their creation. The next step will be wetting the plaster gauze wrapping it around the skeleton. Lastly, they will paint their creations and make them ready for viewing by their peers, parents, and teachers.

This project will take planning, designing, and creating to a whole new level for my students.
