My Students

I have the most amazing students in my classroom. They face so many obstacles in and out of the classroom. However, they have such positive attitudes and big smiles on their faces when they enter the classroom every day.

I make each one of them feel special every day.

For many, school is the only place they will receive meals and a warm loving environment. I try to make school a place they want to come to every single day so they are excited about it!

My Project

Science for elementary school students is quickly moving into engineering and coding. I want to provide my students with hands on learning in these areas so they are not left behind.

Engineering has students apply what they know about math and science and enhance their learning in many ways.

The interactive robots will provide endless opportunities to grow and explore. They will also learn how these subjects are relevant to their own lives.

In addition, the robots will allow students to problem solve and work with other students to answer questions. When they collaborate they learn to think critically and communicate with each other.
